Today I ran for an hour, and at mile two I wanted to stop. Then I thought of Gail Devers, the fastest woman in the world, and how she almost had her feet amputated from Graves Disease.
Then I thought — what if I was in her situation, about to loose my feet. What would I want to do? I’d want to run. I kept saying it over and over again. I’d want to run. I’d want to run. I’d want to run. I’d want to run. I’d want to run.
Before I knew it I was enjoying the run and didn’t stop till the hour was up. Thanks Gail. You’re truly an inspiration.
