“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Finishing Last is Not the Worst!

You may remember the post I did back in January about RunDisney celebrating everyone.  Turns out they're not the only race that does it, and they are by far not the only race that does it with a certain amount of pomp and circumstance!

My friend David (who some of you might remember meeting in my blog post about my very first Marathon - at DisneyWorld) ran the Rome Marathon last weekend.  He just happened to have finished last. But he was greeted and treated like the winner!  And they have it all on video!  Check out this quick clip of his finish and short interview after.  Complete and total awesomeness.  Plus, the video's gone a bit viral online - how cool is that?

Thoughtful Thursday

So, I'm gonna try something new here on the blog - Thoughtful Thursday - kind of like other people's "Motivation Monday."  Actually, it's a LOT like Motivation Monday, lol.  Just a different day.  Everyone's posting about starting a new week on Monday mornings - we're all feeling feeling refreshed, invigorated, and full of plans for a great week of workouts.  If you're anything like me, by the time Thursday rolls around - half the time you're thinking "missing today won't hurt..."  So here's a little near-the-end-of-the-week motivation to keep you going strong!
