You kept hearing two distinct streams of thought this morning and wondered how they were connected, and we will answer that now. You thought of the idea of a marathon and the number of times you have witnessed those doing everything in their power to complete the race. You questioned what would cause them to put their bodies in such distress intentionally. Then you reflected on the book, “Three Feet From Gold.” Here is what you were attempting to piece together.
You finish the marathon because even through the pain, the exhilaration and feeling of accomplishment are unsurpassed by anything you have known. The three feet reference was meant to have you remember that most give up just before they reach that gold or finish line. It is your choice now.
