Get Up and Finish the Race - Inspirational Runner Videos

I was/am in need of a major pick-me-up today, and sometimes YouTube fits that bill.
Especially when it involves running and overcoming the odds and obstacles.

Here are a couple that gave me a boost, just in case you need one, too.

Eric Liddell, Chariots of Fire
Heather Dorniden, 2008 Big Ten Indoor Track Championships
Derek Redmond, 1992 Summer Olympics

I feel a little better already.

  1. Well, I just bawled through all of those clips (I watched the last one first -- big mistake!)! I wish I had that kind of courage and hope and determination. Those are awesome, bro. Thank you for those today.

  2. Here is another one you may like. It of course comes from the triathlon world. The winner didn't necessarily fall down, but it amazing to see his determination to come from behind and win.

  3. I'm glad you liked them, sis. Figured maybe I'm not the only one who needed a little lift/inspiration.

    Jameson, that was a great finish. Crazy how fast they could run that late in the race. Definitely super-human determination by Docherty.
