Keep Moving Forward

I’m at a workshop in Sedona, Arizona, this week, so I’m sharing a few of my favorite blogs.

While this was first  posted on Swim. Bike. Run. 3NDURANCE on March 21, I just recently read this blog on Julie Moss’ incredible finish at the Ironman Kona in 1982

Here she is near the finish of one of the most grueling endurance events in the world. With a short lead, Julie could no longer run after swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles and running 26 miles, so she tried walking. Her legs buckled. So she tried to stand and walk again. Her legs buckled yet another time. So she did the only thing that she was able . . . she crawled to the finish line even after being passed at the very end! She showed amazing fortitude in the face of a struggle.

I strongly encourage you to read Julie’s account of the race here.

What is it that motivates you to keep moving forward?

  1. This is extremely well timed, my little 8 yr old is going in her first tryathalon this weekend. It is a TRYathalon because there are no winners or loosers everyone who finishes gets a medal from a sporting hero. She is super excited. I am nevous for her, 75m swim, followed by 3km ride, then a 500m run. She inspires me and the rest of our family. We all try to inspire each other to keep going, with faith in God to be our strength when we are weak. Great post, thanks for sharing. 🙂
