“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals”
Last month I shared an interview with a guy named Jake. A guy with a wife, two little boys, a job, friends, hobbies and a gym habit. A seemingly ordinary guy but one doing something extraordinary.
This evening, after just under 12 hours of swimming, biking and running – not to mention countless hours of training – Jake became an Ironman. Congratulations, Jake! For those of you who missed his interview, here it is.
Not only did I find Jake’s achievement to be a great example of setting goals and setting them high, I thought it was a perfect time to remind that sometimes, it’s not only the athlete who achieves his or her goal. Whether a goal to make it to the gym three times a week, commit to CrossFit for six months or complete an Ironman, achieving a goal is rarely done alone. It often takes the love and support of those close to us.
In that spirit, two more fitting entries below.
What’s your biggest accomplishment and did support from others help you get there? Comment or tweet me @runlikegirl311 on Twitter.
