YouTube Tuesday: The Race

This past week I've focused a lot on running. It was one of my 100 Steps Toward Happiness. It was my Obsession of the Week. And now, I'm featuring videos of running here.

It's a healthy way to exercise and get active. And I think we can learn a lot from runners. Check out what I mean in the videos below.

Is this isn't inspiring... I don't know what is. It just goes to show us that anything is possible if we set our minds, hearts and souls to it.

Another video of a race... only this one makes me cry literally every time I watch it. It shows the power of true determination and true love.

And finally, one last video of runners showing us certain truths. Sometimes, it's the struggle.  Sometimes it's the way we respond. Sometimes, it's about meeting the challenges we set for ourselves. Sometimes it's not about standing out, but letting our actions speak louder than words and finishing what we start.

We can learn a lot from runners. They teach us about strength, determination, passion, and heart. What do you take away from the videos above?


  1. I so wish I could run. This is inspirational :)
