These Are Not My Shoes:

Think about it...
Only you can fill yours

Well I ended up working late last night and did not get to finish this post. However, Rae saw where I was going with this and has already added a comment this morning.

I was trying to find a creative way to discuss our common goal(s) and where we each are individually. Instead I am just going to simply say what's on my mind.

I just wanted to tell each of you that I am glad you are all out there. Not only for me but for each other. I think it is great that we can offer support and advice to one another no matter were we each are in relationship to our goals. One comment left on a blog or in an e-mail can be enough to keep ones motivation up.

We all know that training is not always much fun. I for one like to read about your victories as well as your struggles. Sometimes knowing I am not the only one having a struggle helps.

Often someone will create a catch phrase or use a Disney quote that is inspiring. Like "Main Street Awaits" or "Keep Moving Forward".

Byron came up with "Keep Moving Forward" a few posts ago over at http://blog.phatdisneygeek.com/ he was inspired by this quote from "Meet The Robinsons"

That quote struck a chord with me and has stuck. This past Saturday during my long jog I felt like slowing down or just walking it out but that quote came back to me and helped me through.
I am thankful to Byron for sharing it. It just goes to show that you never know who you may inspire.

Ok everyone get out there and lace up those shoes.

:-) Nice post, it's what gets me out the door 6 days a week - knowing I owe it to you guys to put in the miles and keep it going.

Posting on the blogs you read really helps to keep everyone motivated.

The blogs are a great way to help with motivation - but in last year it's helped me and my family make great friends worldwide.

Keep on running and posting - insert catchphrase... I haven't got one... yet ;-)

You are right, knowing Team Voice is in this together, and knowing that all of us want to succeed, makes it impossible to give up on the goal.

If I had planned on signing up for an event, but training wasn't going well, I would EASILY decide to forget it.

But with Team Voice, I know I'd have to have an impossibly good excuse, and even then, all of you would end up convincing me AGAIN that I could do this. So giving up is just not an option!

The only option is to keep moving forward!!
