Pelotonia Inspiration

This past Friday, I was privledged enough to be able to attend the opening ceremomies of Pelotonia 2010 in Columbus with my friend Parker.

For those of you who don't know, Pelotonia is a bicycle race from Columbus to Athens (with the option of four stops in between). Every dollar raised is donated to the James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State University. In 2009, they raised over $4mil. for cancer research, with one goal: to end cancer.

During the opening ceremonies, an inspiring video was shown about beating cancer, featuring a woman who passed away several months ago with breast cancer giving a speech about defeating cancer. One thing she said really struck a cord with me:

"The key to being successful in your life's mission, is to have a passion for it."

Wow. So true. How different would the world be if everyone did what they were passionate about? Something to think about.

So, this week, I challenge you to do what you're passionate about. Whether it be finding a cure for cancer or playing outside - do it. No matter what.
