As an adolescent man, I was in youth track and cross-country and surely could rank nationally, and post 4-consecutive years without the need of loss and first place, and I was lucky to discover something I was proficient at early on during my life. I didn’t know it back then when we use ahead up and wish to meet me and inform me how much they enjoyed watching me run and win. Today, I do understand, as it’s an innate sense we’ve got to watch others, especially underdogs, overcome and win. Perhaps why the Rocky series movies were quite popular and why people like movies much like the Karate Kid.

Recently, I watched a really inspirational YouTube video about a little daughter athlete. A 7th grader cross-country runner who beat each of the high girls in the State Championships, her name is Grace Ping. You might want to watch the next videos yourself:

1). “Grace Ping [GP], 7th grader, takes along the ENTIRE 2015 Roy Griak secondary school field” within the FloTrack Channel.
2). “GP Not Allowed to Race NXN” about the MileSplit Channel
3). “GP After Racing Pro 3K At UW Indoor” about the MileSplit Channel
4). “GP Story” Sean Tehan Channel
5). “GP – Athlete Of The Week” Chris Barriere Channel

One commenter wrote: “why am I watching this video, I’m not during track aside from athletic.”

My reply was simple: “Because you adore an individual to be able level of spirit all of which will to win. We all do.”

You see, it can make us feel alive, celebrate us smile and discover someone rise above, go the gap, defy chances and win. Americans will forever hold such values and hold a particular place in our hearts for many who remind us that which you are capable of. It turns out the super cross-country runner Grace is not merely an anomaly – she’s also a cross-country skier – the ones long skiing training endeavors helped her develop strong cardio, will, determination, high pain threshold, and legs of steal, even for a 13 yr old.

It is amazing what are the human body can do, buyers ., she obviously has good genetics for running, yet it’s more than that, it’s her intense training, training that’s transferable from skiing to running. Interestingly enough most skills are transferable, specially the human trait of perseverance. She’s got that, and well, you do too. She’s found her “inner winner” as well as perhaps it is time which you found yours too. Please consider pretty much everything and think about it.
