Music inspires us all. Rascal Flatts’ Unstoppable must have been an anthem to many Winter Olympic athletes.
This video also inspired me. It still does.
That’s the funny thing about inspiration. It’s like a fire. You have to keep it going, or it’ll go out.
Got passion for wellness and well being?
Rekindle your fire here, every day.
The little boy worked hard for many years. He set a school record. He won the County Championship.
Then he went to College. And found out he had been a very small fish in a very big pond, more like the ocean.

Lahti, Finland…2009 Senior Olympics…
Many readers are not familiar with what happened in 2009. This jeff noel blog was still in relative infancy.
But in 2009, my impossible goal was about to become reality.
What started out as the infamous, one-mailbox-a-day for a week wellness challenge, had morphed into the pursuit of a long lost childhood dream.

Rarely held on American soil, the 2011 Masters Track & Field World Championships will be held July 6-17, 2011 in Sacramento, California.
I will probably not be there.
Too much, too soon.
Or, maybe a whole new way to approach world class performance.
We’ll have to wait and see.
Missed it last year too…
The 2011 Master’s Track & Field Indoor National Championships will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, March 4-6.
I will not be there.
Of course, this is a trivial issue for all of you. In fact, I’d go as far as saying, unless you’re my Mother, you don’t care.
That’s okay, we can still be friends. But let this “disappointment” be another one of many, in the quest for an impossible goal.
