DO NOT GIVE ME EXCUSES!!!


The human spirit knows no bounds. This is one major reason I participate in endurance events. The stripping away of perceived limitations to go beyond what most think impossible.

So this evening, walk, jog, or run a mile...or maybe 20 miles.

This photo is courtesy of my wife Brenda. She took it about 200 feet from the finish line of the Dallas Whiterock Marathon 2008. The Dallas Whiterock Marathon's beneficiary is Scottish Rite Hospital that helps those like the young boy running the last part with the two adult runners. Note of interest: The double amputee passed me at about mile 21.

That is inspiring. At the Wildflower half-ironman there was a blind athlete competing. He had a guide who was tethered to him. The guide led on the swim and the run. On the bike they rode a tandem bike. Crazy stuff.

Wow, incredible. Thanks for posting. I've shared it on Facebook and Twitter (attributing you, of course). Really makes you realize what can be accomplished. Good job to your wife for a great eye.
