There was a Nike ad that someone recently sent me that I found rather fitting for the journey we are on right now...
"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."
Last week Kyle gave a speech to a group of students at Woodward Academy where both Evan and I graduated from. Kyle read this quote aloud to the students and then explained that we all have a disability in life. We all have something that we feel holds us back or that we allow to hold us back. All of his life, Kyle has told people YES! He has not accepted "no" as an answer and has attacked the world with an energy that rubs off on us all.
So what does all this mean? It means we must push harder in order to achieve our goals, and that we work to tell everyone "Yes!" So we tie a bucket to our waist and we swim.
We grab the bucket so that we can get ready to pull Kyle in his new boat. They cannot tell us "no" can they?
And what better way to give Evan and Kyle a surprise birthday party but with a new toy to get on the road together! Gonna be hard to tell Kyle "no" with his new wheels for the race.
Evan and Kyle will be testing the new "jogger" this week and the three of us decided to add a double secret race and give it a test run at the Charles Harris 10K this Saturday. The race director said there was a time limit to finish this run. Sounds like another "no" to me?
But it's not all race business. We found time to get together at Neighbor's with friends for the big 26 for Evan and Kyle and last week, we checked out Evan play a little music with Parker Smith and the Bandwidth
So be sure to say YES and not hold back and if you have some time feel free to share the road!!!
