Run the Beach Marathon - Marathon #65

Run the Beach Marathon was at Sunset Beach in Huntington Beach, California. The weather was overcast and in the low 60's, great for a morning marathon. It was really nice to see some of the local marathoners. I finished 6:46:48

Kurt and I met last year at Death Valley Marathon. Since meeting Kurt he has become a Marathon Maniac and has run a marathon a month. Kurt is on his way to Ruthenium Level ( 5 stars).

Min has a back injury and hasn't run much this year. Good to see you Min!

Charles is a 50 Stater and is on his 3rd round of the states. Brad & Mary are my favorite couple. They are always smiling and having fun together.

Ironman Laura was not a part of the marathon. I notice her Ironman tattoos which started our conversation. Laura finished her first Ironman in Arizona last month. She's still feeling the high and excitement. Laura did an Ironman for her 50th birthday. I rest my case. Our forties were fabulous but our 50's are AMAZING!!! Laura? You go girl!!!

THERE IS ONLY ONE KEY TO SUCCESS: NEVER QUIT! Believe in yourself and your vision of the future. Surround yourself with those who believe in you and will help you achieve your goals. Keep your dream alive despite the challenges along the way. There will always be those who try to steal your dream by laughter or criticism. They cannot understand what drives you to always want more. In safety, there is no failure - neither is there success. Only by taking the risks that others fear can you achieve greatness. Change can be frightening, but only by changing can you experience growth. Only by challenging yourself to do what seems impossible can you ever know how much you can achieve. There is only one key to success: never quit until you win. It may require a lot of changing, but you can do it. The seed of greatness lies within you. Nurture it, and there will be nothing you can't do.

Keep Believing in yourself and your Dreams!
