Someone on a FB group asked what song would say represented your Triathlon journey and after a few minutes I realized it has not changed since the start, the Climb by Miley Cyrus has been and always will be my song. I wrote about this in a June 20, 2012 blog post The Climb and it still holds true. I have had a dream for 3 years and along the way obstacles have come and gone, I have become the person who can do this and I realize it is about the climb. Yes the view from the top is beautiful but it is what you accomplish to get there that matters the most. So yes, the time is now, I have done enough, I have dreamed enough and it is time to climb.
I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never make it"
Every step I am taking
Every move I am make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna to make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I am going to have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb.
