Here is a quote from the book Ultra Marathon Man about Dean Karnazes.  This quote really spoke to my soul the first time I read it.  Since then, every time I get anxious or scared when getting out of my comfort zone, I think about this quote and it gives me the courage to go for it.  I believe this quote epitomizes the true Life Bus spirit.  I hope it motivates and encourages some one else to reach beyond what they thought was possible …. the way it did me.

“… Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming:  WOW!!  What a ride!”  … Cheers to that!
