“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Decidedly Dopey

"This loveable, slightly-balmy, child-like fellow gets a great kick out of life.  Imbued with a sense of fun, he is a bit like Harpo-Marx, in that Dopey doesn’t speak, but his sly grin seems to ‘tell all.’  Dopey’s garments are at least 5 sizes too big for him, but that only adds to his charm.  Somewhat mischievous, Dopey somehow manages to capture the hearts of everyone." - http://crushable.com

No doubt about it, I have definitely been Dopey recently.  Not really in the way of the characteristics ascribed to Dopey the dwarf above, but in the common vernacular kind of "dopey."  And mostly in regards to my running training and nutrition lately.  Neither of which are good things.

So, how to turn it around?  New race, new goals, new motivation and inspiration.  Stay tuned for the next post for details on what's up next...
