It is time to either shit or get off the pot. I have always loved that saying. Probably because it's so raw in it's meaning and forthright in it's sound.
I don't have a ton of time here. I'm 45 years young and I want the MOST out of life that I can possibly squeeze. I MUST take chances NOW if I want to remain competitive in sport.
I'm willing to go the distance. To train like a mad woman whether it be biking, running, or swimming. The marathon, the IM, or sprints. It doesn't matter which I choose. The only thing that matters is that I get to push myself to the limits just to see what I'm capable of. There will be no "what ifs" in my retirement life. Only "remember whens".
Instinctively and cautiously I am already considering what to do about over the next 5 years. The long list. There are things I want to do over the next few years and I'm gearing up to be ready. I'm following my hearts pull. The thing that I have a real aching to do.
No more testing the waters. There's not enough time!! I can do that later when time is not of the essence. Period.
