I have written about my husband before and how he is a Ultra Marathoner who runs 50K's (32 miles). He's suffered over and over with his body with certain ailments and continues to study and research the parts of the body that cause him the problems and then he dedicatedly works and works on those muscles. I am not talking about a few weeks, I am talking months of dedication daily!! He never gives up.
A few weekends ago he ran in a race called "Lovin the Hills" I can't go into specific elevation here, but were talking thousands of feet they had to climb in the Kentucky area.
This was one of the pictures they got of my husband running in the beautiful hills of Kentucky. I was so proud of him (not sure why because he's proved that is just who he is) never gives up.
It was bitterly cold, 18 degrees with a wind chill in the single digits. I made it in that cold 40 minutes and about froze, but my hubby a lot longer.
So I wanted to dedicate today's post to him and to everyone else out there who strives everyday to be their best. Don't give up!
Here's his finishing time and place:
50K - 75 Finishers
