as i watched this, i couldn't help but cry.
i LOVE everything about this story.
it aired on the TODAY show on Monday, the 4th.
the FIRST person with Down Syndrome to complete the NYC marathon!!!
my youngest sister, Mary, has Down Syndrome, so it hits a very special place in my heart.
he ENCOURAGED other runners along the way, telling them if he could keep going, then so could they. his beautiful spirit & determination makes me question my lame excuses.
sometimes it takes seeing a total stranger persevere to really wake you up.
ALL of us CAN keep going!
thank you, jimmy.

curious...who motivates YOU?
have a blessed weekend!!
