I am reminded of my childhood when dreams were my world and anything was possible. The image of The Little Engine That Could comes to mind. This book teaches children the value of optimism of and hard work, something for me that life had slowly dampened as so much began to seem unattainable. The last few years of running experiences with incredible support from family and friends has brought me back to those days of dreaming. Surround yourself with positive people, believe in yourself, think outside the box and you can feel like a kid again.
To all those who are about to go outside the box this weekend at Umstead or anywhere else; When you think you can't, you can. When don't want to anymore, you will.
