Monday Motivation - You Decide "Where to Go"

When planning your 2011 season
remember the words of
Dr. Seuss

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.

You're on your own.

And you know what you know.

You are the guy who'll decide where to go.



  1. Good one Brian! Like the red & blue text too.

  2. Sara,
    Thanks! Wishing you a Happy New Year and great 2011 season!

  3. Ah yes, conscience decisions. We make a conscience decision “whether we want to enter the race or not.” It’s like the fork in the road that provides the option to take the harder more challenging journey, or the one easier more comfortable one. Obviously, we endurance athletes have taken on the challenge to set and pursue goals that elevate our self-awareness and test ourselves to limits we previously thought were unimaginable. We use our brains and our feet to head down the difficult road called uncertainty, the road that parallels the road of dreams. So make a conscience decision today to dream big and pursue those dreams with every ounce of energy you have!
