what sports moments in your own life or watching something else, tv or friend, family made you get out there and just do it ?
I clearly remember watching julie moss stumble, crawl, claw her way across the finish line of the ironman. This image sticks with me every day of my life. I just thought what guts, courage and determination can one person have.
I recall Mary Decker Tabb and her running, as well as the Zola Budd barefoot incident.
I remember watching the USA Olympic Hockey Team beat Russia when I was only 12 years old. My Dad and I cheering in amazement.
As for my own, I did the 800 meters after much coaxing from my coach (in high school) I was a sprinter and really the 400 was too much for me, never mind twice around the track. But I did it and came in first in my heat and did a really good time.
What are some of your inspirational moments ?
