There are many types of reasons for going for your dreams. There are positive reasons and negative reasons as well as reasons that result from satisfying curiosity. All of these can have in them the motivation and energy needed to get you through the discouragements and setbacks.

Athletes who rise to the challenge of the Olympics, World Cup, Iditarod, Iron Man, and other high caliber events.

You can do it!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
