Inspired and Inspiring Running
You’ve probably heard someone before say something about the glass being half full. It’s a saying that suggests that circumstances may be challenging, but what matters most is how we choose to respond to our challenges.
This video about runner Hannah Gavios holds lots of lessons; how many can you identify?
One lesson to pick up from this story is how to turn a deficit into a strength.
Have you seen someone turn a challenge into something positive before? If so, did you also see, like in Gavios’ story, that what she has done causes others to celebrate and be inspired?
What does it say about the community that is in the video that they react to Gavios as they do? Are there people you try to encourage for one reason or another? Can you describe an example of that, with the potential benefits for that person, and you, and others?
