“greatness is for us all”

This past weekend, I did something that I have never done before:  I ran a 10K, or 6.213 miles, in 1 hour, 19 minutes, 48 seconds.  I am not ashamed to say that I am very proud of myself.  The fastest that I have ever done it before was 1 hour, 23 minutes, and some seconds, (I can’t remember exactly).

During the past Olympics in London, Nike ran an ad showing a, shall we say, not so lean, runner running.  He was struggling!  A lot.  But below is the voice over that was playing as he was running. I thought about this as I was running this weekend.

Greatness, or what we consider great in others, actually does reside in ourselves, if we have the courage to dig deep, get in there, find it, and pull it out.  I have to tell you that running that 10K was a struggle that day!  And fortunately, the hubby and the pooch were there to encourage me along the way.

We can all do the great thing that we want to do. If we want to do it bad enough.  And there will be people who will encourage and help us, if we put it out there and go for it.

What great thing will you do this week? Tell me in the comments.

Enjoy your day…
