Start Climbing

- -

Occasionally, you see or read something on Twitter, well, that’s worth seeing or reading. Frank Dick, a former athletics coach and now motivational speaker, offered one today.

Dick told a story about a 9-year-old Scottish girl wanting to run the 100 meters. She ran her first one in 18 seconds, finished last in her mind, eighth of eight in his.  

“You don’t learn to climb mountains by going around them or asking someone for a ladder,” Dick said. “You learn to climb mountains by climbing mountains.”

Snow Day. Six horses in the barn. Three in the field. Off to climb my mountain.
