my hero

This morning I went for a jog in the park and saw my hero again. On the few occasions I get out, he's always there, so he must run every single day. He's an older guy, and he's got some kind of rigidity problem. He's got this very stiff gait that only allows him to kick his feet out a few inches at each step -- and he RUNS. He runs like nobody's business, I see him all over the place. He's just amazing. I always think that if he had my (relatively) flexible body, he'd be an olympic athelete with it. And if I had had his body, I would have just given up. But he has so much willpower and grit, he's clearly a great athelete. I've never even seen him taking a break, he's always running! So whenever I feel sorry for myself I think of him and try to push myself a little harder :)

I'm inspired by my grandmother, who still takes walks every single day and lives a vibrant life in spite of medication, pain etc. I'm inspired by her positive attitude.

I am inspired by some people that passed me while running my first 5K. First a Kenyan man, he was running a 10K (with the same start time) and did it under 30 minutes. It was awesome to see. Also the mom with two kids in the stroller that passed me and the two 8 year olds running side by side. They motivate me to get back out and run each day. One day, I will beat them =)
