I've spent a fair amount of my life chewing over ideas surrounding "Courage", Authenticity and Integrity.
Runners get this.
We are a bit courageous every time we step out the door for a run.
The moment we sign up.
Each time we lace up our running shoes.
And walk out the door for a run.
Every time we step up to the start line with butterflies in our stomachs.
This is an active choice.
It doesn't happen to us,
We choose to Do it.
A Choice that changes us forever.
That act of courage contributes to our character.
Courage... can be found in unlikely places.
