You Gotta Want It!
My co-workers and boss are the best. They're the most understanding bunch around AND they don't mind when I run around the office in cycling or running gear trying to get to the shower. The only problem is when they catch you on the way in from a run at lunch and your standing there in your tights while they're trying to talk work...really? Give me just a minute, I'm feeling a little exposed here. ANYWAY, I work with two former NCAA Football and Basketball players. You know, REAL athletes. For some reason I still don't think of myself as an athlete, I don't really know why but I don't. These guys were/are fierce. I kind of felt like part of their little 'athlete club' when I ran out the door at lunch the other day - bundled to the core, Gore-Tex suit, super warm hat, gloves, the whole bit. As I started to take off and as they got into their cars to go to lunch they yelled...YOU GOTTA WANT IT! ...Of course, this was in reference to the fact that it was freakin' 20 degrees out.
But they're right, YOU GOTTA WANT IT and for just a minute, I felt like part of their little club of 'real' athletes. And so, there it is, Ironman Balls to the Wall...YOU GOTTA WANT IT! I may just have to make that into a t-shirt.
