Some Motivation

Bryan made the remark on his blog yesterday that he would enjoy some motivational video to watch in his lead up to Kona. Well this is not much of a motivational video but it is my video of my Kona experience last year.

Sharing the experience with Kim and DJ and that feeling of having an Ironman World Championship medal around your neck is just priceless and something that will stay with me forever and something I'll never forget.

Definitely the highlight of my Ironman career.

Enjoy the video B and stay focused to get that medal on the 9th of October. Staying motivated and focused is hard, especially during the final two weeks leading up to the race

Below is also a piece, titled "The Real Secret of Success" that was written by Walter P Chrysler. It is all about enthusiasm and something I live by daily. I have made a small card with these words on it and carry it in my wallet.

If you aren't enthusiastic about something anymore, stop doing it as you are busy wasting your time.

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm.

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm.

Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hope rise to the stars.

Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eye, it is the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand,
the irresistible surge of your will, and your energy to execute your ideas.

Enthusiasts are fighters.

They have fortitude, they have staying qualities.

Enthusiasm is behind all progress.

With it there is accomplishment.

Without it there are only alibis!"

-Walter P Chrysler


  1. Never looked at my drive as "enthusiasm" but what else is there that gets you out the door every day?

    Great video! Kona is not even a thought in my mind. Maybe one day...

    One heck of an experience though, great job!

  2. Awesome video, I'm motivated that's for sure. Waiting to set off that raging fire of enthusiasm again too - it's coming, it's just a bit damp at the moment.
