I took this photo (stairs to my basement in where OPT started) in 2004, and seeing I had some time to reflect on this hot winter night.... It was moments before the last trip up these stairs to get the last piece of equipment off the Atlantis order that had come...i think some plate mates...and i captured the moment because I knew afterwards I would be in for a doozy of a time for the next few years. Many have doubted and disagreed the path that I have taken, but I NEVER flinched. So I pass on to those who have some obstacles in their way (mine at the time of photo was being more than broke, quitting my job and risking it all) that when you put your mind to a goal that you truly believe in, become a finisher. In the end, you'll see that it will not matter what place you finished, but if you give it your all on the trip, the results are amazing!
