Its unlike any other race, this thing we call life. It is, most days, a grind. Lap after lap of mind-numbing routine. And then there are days when it is a sprint and you find yourself out of breath from sunup to sundown. The elevation changes, too. There are lengthy climbs that lead to breathtaking vistas. And there are valleys so deep that you want to quit running altogether. So why don’t you? Why don’t you quit? Because you’re not alone. You’re surrounded by a crowd of witnesses – unseen witnesses – cheering you on in this test of endurance and perseverence. They testify silently that the race is worth it. And the reward for finishing, whether the finish line is just around the next curve or too far in the distance to see, is worth the running.
