    About two years ago, while running the trails at the park I frequent, I witnessed this lady in her 70's walking with a cane in both hands. She must have walked at least 5 miles that day...Whenever I'm tired or unmotivated to run, I envision her walking..with those canes. Her spirit drives me on...I've been blessed with a healthy body so I run..Motivation is everywhere guys...you just need to look around your environment and witness for yourself. Happy Trails...Steve

    I feel the same way. If I can walk, run, jump, move then I should be doing something other than sitting and watching tv or online (ya ya rj doesnt count) all day. thank bud

    When I was in grad skool in the ludicrously cold part of the country... chipping ice of the inside of the windshield with one hand as I drove to campus... Fume hood in the lab full of everybody's batteries charging all day... I always passed this guy in our department... He had MS. Had to walk sort of sideways, dragging one foot. He always ran to campus, in just tights and a toque. -20 outside. icon_eek.gif No longer allowed to feel sorry for myself for the rest of the day.



    Fucker.

    Yep, there's inspiration everywhere you look. Feeling sorry for yourself? Think about how your life compares to the lives of most of the other people in the world. Those of us who live in the so-called "first world" take it for granted, but we have much to be thankful for.
