I saw this video on ESPN the other day and was really inspired and challenged by it. The senior captain of San Francisco University high school, Holland Reynolds, became so dehydrated during her state championship cross country race that she fell over a few meters shy of the finish line. She ended up crawling her way to the finish and clinching the championship for her team. What’s more inspiring though is that she did it for her coach Jim Tracy, who was diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease earlier in the year.
If you want to watch something really funny, devote 35 seconds of your precious time to watch this Chinese hurdler give it his all to win this track and field race. It’s his passion, his total ambivalence to the standard, and his will to finish his race strong that inspires us all.
Hey, let’s give the guy some credit for trying.
Apparently, the guy never had a coach.
