How often do we feel like giving up? Discouragement overtakes the reality that just a few more steps and . . . we can cross that finish line.
Holland Reynolds began to feel week about one-half mile from the finish line. What she said should have been an easy race became difficult.
I love this - Reynolds staggered, then collapsed just feet from the finish line.
A race official, immediately at her side, advised her that if she wanted to finish the race -- the finish line just mere feet in front of her -- she could crawl enough to get one foot over the line. But if she received assistance, she'd be disqualified and the points would not count toward her team's total.Reynolds kept going.
How many times do we give up? How many times do our husbands, friends, children give up and what is really needed is
Never give up. Run for yourself. Run for your team.
