Inspiration of the week

I might have posted about this before - my mind does fail me sometimes, but anyway, whenever I need a motivation boost (today's 15 miler run went really poorly and I only did about 11 at snail pace), I will pick up an issue of Runner's World to look for inspiration.

I found one.

Dominique Sullman was born 12 weeks premature with cerebral palsy and he wasn't expected to survive the first week. The doctors said that he will never be able to play sports. His mother told him - run. And he did.

For a boy that started crawling when he was only 3, now 19, he has ran a 3:43 marathon.

This morning, I told B.T that this might be my last marathon no scratch that. I don't think I can complete 7 and might just do 1 or 2 more. Perhaps, maybe, just maybe, I might. We'll see.
