A tremendous motivational story. So much better than just words!!
I get motivation lots of places. I heard this story on a news broadcast when it first happened and it’s one of those many illustrative events that I rest my mind on when I’m feeling personally weak and uninspired.
Most of us have challenges in life that nobody else really sees. We’re not in a stadium full of people who watch us overcome or who applaud us to the finish line. Nevertheless, it’s the personal strength and determination that I enjoy watching on display in this video. It reminds me to keep pushing. It reminds me that even if everybody else around me has already reached their goal, as long as I’m still putting one foot in front of the other, I’m in the game. It doesn’t matter how fast I’m going, as long as I’m still fighting.

Lynn is quite exceptional, isn’t she?!!
She certainly is. I don’t think you meet many people as focussed as she is in a lifetime.
And don’t we all complain too much about the paper cuts that sting for a day or two.
We do. And I still haven’t found out who left the top off the jam yesterday, but I will!
Now that is cause for a totally out of there diatribe.
you give me hope, john. someday i will still be able to motivate myself to go back to running. haha!
My plan is to lose the fifty pounds and then take it from there.
Now that, my friend, is a very good plan indeed! Why didn’t I think of that? 😳😄😋
Thanks, John for sharing. A push I needed this morning to put one foot in front of the other.
My pleasure, but the person behind all this is Doctor Lynn who writes “Life in the gym”. She is light years ahead of my pathetic efforts to lose some of the flab, but she is an example to us all. Strong, fit and totally focussed. Now…is there any ice cream left???
Indeed, it’s great!
