“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.” – Bernice Johnson Reagon
I always believe that things happen for a reason and opportunities come to you when you least expect it. What you do when presented with these opportunities truly can help you discover who you are. When I received the invitation to EPICMAN I was not even sure if it was humanly possible. Nor was I sure I would have time to train with opportunities opening up for me at work. Then I went back and re-read My Speech from Angie’s Half Crazy! Half Marathon back in April 2010 this struck me, “If you set a goal for yourself and stop and think about it you will find every reason in the book why you can’t do it. If you commit yourself to it and you are passionate about it you will find a way to accomplish your goals.” I stopped over thinking and it all fell into place 🙂
The EPICMAN Challenge® takes place from December 30, 2011 @7am – Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 9am. 50 hours to complete a 7.2 mile swim – 336 mile bike – 78.6 mile run. Non-Stop – on the island of Oahu.
