It was happening in every corner of the gym. Athletes were completing their first double under or their heaviest snatch. We were doing much more than our expectations and it was contagious. It was also inspiring. Many of us had come here believing we couldn’t do something and we had just proven ourselves wrong. And maybe, just maybe, we are all capable of so much more than we ever thought.
The finishing point, the place, the result is never what motivates people. It’s the heart we pour out into each effort that changes us and those around us.
I received a package today from “House of Cards”. I can only assume it came directly from Claire Underwood.
Actually @HouseofCards on Twitter contacted me after I responded to one of their promo tweets, saying they wanted to send me something.
