Tales of a Runner turned Triathlete, I think I have superpowers now

This video got me thinking - sigh, I always wanted to travel the world.
I’ve been to 3 different countries other than my own, but one of them was during a layover to China (Japan). So I guess that leaves me with 2 countries officially visited. That’s pretty pathetic, really.
So during a friend’s farewell party, another friend said that he’ll visit him in Switzerland and then joked he would do the Ironman there. I couldn’t resist, I vowed that I would do it too had my visiting-friend signed up for IM Switzerland! It all seemed light-spirited at the time.
Then a few weeks later, my friend suddenly sent a text, which read "IMZ Confirmed". The “Zee” was referring to Zurich in Switzerland. I knew instantly from that moment on, I had to go.
This inspiring quote is suspiciously fitting...
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
S-T-A-R...this is going onto my 2012 to-dos list! =)
