failure is not an option

Just wanted to give a shout out to my running peeps
who are traveling to Washington DC to run
the Army 10-miler this weekend.
I ran it last year and it was an experience I'll never forget.
Before that race I used to complain during runs,
that my legs hurt, my feet hurt, you name it, it hurt.
You get the idea.
Then we ran that race
with veterans in wheelchairs,
with prosthetic arms and legs.
Both legs.
I remember passing one gentleman
who was changing out his prosthethis for another.

That was the motto on numerous shirts worn in the race
but that motto sank into my heart that day
and I don't want it to ever leave.
Failure is NOT not reaching a goal.
Failure is giving up and not trying again.
How about you?
