Keep your eye on the Hoop

In college I always had favorite sayings...words I would read to re-energize and help me focus. Poems, quotes, books, cereal boxes, you get the idea... Often we get lost in our own heads so deep that we cannot find a way out. The mind is strong, it is amazing what you can accomplish with will power and positive thinking. I have been through injuries, sickness, bad games, slow and painful running, I have been overweight, out of shape and just plain out of it totally... I am at my best when my mind and body work together toward a positive outcome... Anyhow it is late and I have a plane to catch tomorrow...now I am truly going on vacation..but not until I leave you with this.

"What really matters is what you do with what you have."
Shirley Lord


I am not the most athletic person in the world,
inside I believe I am and that makes all the difference.
