Another week to get better....

Another week is upon us. We have opportunities everyday to improve and get better. Do not settle with just ordinary. Always strive to reach your fullest capabilities. There is no limit on what you can accomplish. When you achieve a goal, set higher goals and go out and achieve them. You have the power to do anything you want.

This weekend was another triathlon. Overall, this was my 18th triathlon. And 11th in the last 2 years. I participated in the San Luis Obispo Sprint Triathlon. It was a great race. I competed with twelve members from the Visalia Triathlon Club. It was great seeing everyone on the course. We represented and got Visalia on the map in the sport of triathlon.

Two years ago, when I completed in this event for the first time, my time was 1 hour 37 minutes. Sunday, my time was 1 hour 17 minutes. Good enough for 9th overall and 1st in my age group. It is pretty cool to see how much I have improved in this tough sport. I know I have a long way to go, but I will continue to work my butt off. I am excited to get better and I am excited to see how far I can go with this sport. With a determined attitude, who knows what I can do.

I thank the "man upstairs" for the people He has surrounded me with and the skills and traits He has blessed me with. I will contine to use my skills and traits to motivate and inspire everyone around me!

Let's all continue to be positive and motivate others so that we make this world a better place to live. It is our job to inspire and drive others to be their best.

I am truly grateful to be member of a wonderful organization. I will never forget my first triathlon experience. It made me realize that I can overcome many obstacles. The San Luis Triathlon is the first, of many, events.
