If it kills you, it kills you

Over a lifetime I’ve been stricken with a drive for forward movement…it seems that once I accomplish one goal or a challenge …or not 🙂 …it simply provides a new foundation for the next thing.

On the exercise and training side, it started with a marathon, that turned into 6 marathons, then a triathlon, that turned into an Ironman, that turned into 4 Ironman…with lots of ‘other category’ goals and ‘stuff’ beside it along the way.

…and have had a lot of friends and family over the decades often shaking their heads, and wondering ‘why’, and myself often shaking my head and wondering ‘why’…the constant quest for another goal…something else…just seems that when I climb to a certain level, I can now see something else attainable that I couldn’t see, or couldn’t see as possible, before, so just keep on going…

In the New York Times this past weekend, as part of an article on training memory recall, I saw a quote that says it as well as anything I’ve ever seen:

“There are no limits. There are plateaus, and you must not stay there; you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you.” Bruce Lee
