Turning Dreams into a Reality

"We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort."
Jesse Owens
American Track and Field Athlete and Olympic Gold Medal Winner

This reminds me of another quote that Bek and I used to always repeat when training for our first marathon.

"Daydreams without work don't amount to anything. It's the actual work that counts."
Heber J. Grant

I think it's always important to remember that we are the ones to choose how our life is going to turn out. We are the ones that have to put the work in to reach our individual goals.

Love those quotes! I loved getting the one from runners world on my blackberry an hour before I was supposed to leave for my run! Talk about motivating!
