This is War

Tomorrow when I enter the waters of Kailua Bay in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii  – I go to war.

It is not me against them.  It is not me against you.  It is me against me.

There will be moments of glory, moments of pain.

There will be moments where I will feel invincible, moments where I want to quit.

This is normal, for what I will be doing is not normal.

I will remember the work that I have done, the frustrations I have conquered – all to get to this day.

No quarter will be asked, none will be given.

I will drive forward remembering the high points and the low points of this journey – both will fuel my passion and desire.

I will cross the finish line – victorious, but remember that it was not easy, and not without sacrifice.

War never is.
