Your promise to have fun, keep smiling and not to arrive at the finish safely with air still in your lungs, but rather to cross the line-busting a gut, totally worn out, shouting "SMASHED IT... what a run"

Once in a while, we try doing something that we’re not sure we can pull off. It’s risky, it’s wild, it’s a bit foolish, and the outcome is uncertain. But something tells us, “I think I’ve got this” and we run with that optimistic notion, well aware that it’s short-lived. We somehow manage to make it happen and walk away unharmed, holding our heads a little higher than before. There is no better feeling than finding a big chunk of hidden potential.
