WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING!!


The expression.."when the going gets tough, the tough get going" is one of the expressions I constantly heard from my Dad. He used to say it so often that it sunk into my bone marrow. Giving up and giving in just wasn't an option. Hard work and taking the risk to fail was the answer. So....Dad...even though you're no longer here...this one's for YOU!

This morning, in the dark and freezing cold, I got up early, bundled myself up, and WALKED SIX BLOCKS!! That's right..SIX BLOCKS!!

NOT THE PREVIOUS THREE BLOCKS..

SIX BLOCKS!

When the going gets tough, the tough get going!
