This has been an amazing year. It has been my privilege to meet the incredible men and women who make up the Chicago area endurance community.
I have watched people make the impossible, possible. I have learned that there is greatness in each and every one of you, that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything.
Thank you. For sharing your stories, for your support, for reminding me each and every day that I am a lucky dude, living in the best city in the world, part of a community of people that is second to none.
As 2010 fades away and 2011 is upon us, I wanted to try and sum up all of my feelings, thoughts and wishes that I have for all of you. So I once again turned to the source of inspiration that has been a part of my life for 40 years and share it with you now.
My friends at Sesame Street, along with Will I Am from Black Eyed Peas put together a little song that sums it up perfectly, not only is it a catchy beat, but the words are something to remember as we all venture into another year.
Happy New Year, enjoy our song for you, and see you on the other side.
Train hard, race safe, have fun.
