Gee, thanks Mom.
I'm not in the best physical shape of my life (yet), but I'm working on it. I'm not perfect, and I'm not a star athlete. But I can tell you this: I am one of the most stubborn people you will ever meet.
I will make it up this mountain. Even if I don't make it to the top, I will still be happy with my progress. I will still stand near the equator and on a glacier. I will still travel to the other side of the world by myself.
So for the non-supporters? Go ahead and don't support me. This is a personal journey for me. Not for you.
