iCan year two.
“You miss 100% of the shots you do not take”. – Wayne Gretzky.
What is it that you say you “can’t do”? Is it running a marathon, serving others more, discovering your true purpose in life? I can’t_______ (fill in the blank)! Consider Wayne Gretzky’s quote a little more closely, saying “I can’t” normally leads to “I won’t try”. Here’s your chance. If given the opportunity to try something completely out of your comfort zone, would you do it?
The iCan program will be accepting applications for those who have never ran a marathon, but are ready to challenge themselves. Interested? Keep reading! Here are some quotes from the first iCan group.
“Being part of the iCan team has refreshed my soul and made me believe I can accomplish this goal! Just a few weeks in, I’ve already met some incredible people who have shared similar struggles to mine and overcome them. I was humbled and encouraged by readingThe Go-Giver. ” – Stephanie Lengtat
“I am excited, that in 6 more weeks, I will be part of less than 1% of the population – a marathon finisher – going from “I can’t” to “I can” to “I did”! Yes!” – Rachelle Setsodi
“My perspective on running has shifted from Thank God I’ll never have to do that again to thank God I get to do this. And oh by the way, I don’t hate running anymore. Sometimes… I may even like it.” – Steve Carlson
