Fear - I acknowledge its presence, but it will not consume me.  It will not paralyze me.  I will face my fears and rise above.

I used to say this - or something like it - before almost every race that I ever took part in. It helped.

We face fears every day as children, as parents, and as athletes.  We face fears for our children, family, friends, and even strangers – because we’re courageous.

Fear of water, darkness, falling, crashing, illness, failure, success, tragedy, death – courage overcomes.

We all practice courage more often than we realize. Realizing we possess courage can make us more courageous. And that’s a good thing, because there can never be too much courage in this world.

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear— not absence of fear. Courage is not the lack of fear. It is acting in spite of it.”  – Mark Twain
