by having the self-discipline and dedication to commit, sacrifice, and endure the months of training required
to complete such an event.”

“Every morning a gazelle wakes up knowing that it must run faster than the cheetah to stay alive. Every

you’re the cheetah or the gazelle when the sun comes up you better be running.”
Austin – Alto, MI
