Dream Big

A co-worker sent this to me today.
I found this quote from Gail Evers, an Olympic champion sprinter who in 1990 was diagnosed with Graves' disease, and underwent radioactive iodine treatment followed by thyroid hormone replacement therapy. At the 1991 World Championships, she won a silver medal in the 100 m hurdles. Devers left competition in 2005 to give birth to a child with her husband and returned in 2006. On February 2, 2007, at the age of 40, Devers edged 2004 Olympic champion Joanna Hayes to win the 60-meter hurdles event at the Millrose Games in 7.86 seconds - the best time in the world that season and just 0.12 off the record she set in 2003. Furthermore, the time bettered the listed World Record for a 40 year old by almost 7 tenths of a second. She is most easily identified by her long nails.

Gail said this about dreams: “keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember, all things are possible for those who believe.”

Keep dreaming!
