The race is measured in minutes, but the journey here was so much longer. The miles you ran, the sacrifices, and all that you overcame. You'll try to remember, so much will be forgotten, but you’ll remember some things...
The start. Brief moments of panic and calm. The middle. Glimpses of a move, a slip, a push. The finish. When you realize it’s over and ask yourself, “Did I give everything?”
You won’t remember much.
But you’ll remember the answer to that question.
And it will mean everything. #breakthrough
