I felt tears of pride welling up in my eyes as i watched these guys pass us @ the 15, 18 and 26 mile mark, running the WHOLE time with a smile on their face. They worked through some serious pain. It has motivated me, not to run a marathon, since it would take an act of God to get me to run more than 1 mile @ a time, but it made me really look inward and search for some purpose, some goal to reach for. Maybe it's to climb Everest someday, maybe it's to conquer the fear of diving, since I'm horribly afraid of drowning... maybe it's just to realize that our bodies were "wonderfully made", (it's a cubbies thing), and i am capable of a LOT more than what I think. Who knows. What I do know is that i am choosing to eat a little healthier, move a little more, and spend a little more time thinking about what I haven't tried to do because of self doubt.
