It’s the start of a new week and sometimes it can be hard to get out the door and back into a routine, especially if there is 8 inches of new snow on the ground.  That did not stop this senior.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday’s Motivation comes from King himself.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”  ~Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday’s Motivation – May 23, 2016

Although they may not realize it, spectators along the course provide a lot of motivation to runners.  These complete strangers clap and cheer, often shouting words of encouragement as each runner passes by.  Some spectators hold signs like the one below.  Notice the adorable little girl cheesing it when she saw my camera.  Today’s motivation is more of a thank you to all the spectators at all the races for the motivation your provide.

Mortuary Ahead. Look Alive!!

“Mortuary Ahead. Look Alive!!” Spectators along the course of the California Classic Half Marathon in 2013. Notice the adorable little girl cheesing it.

A few moments ago, the first participants began their 26.2 mile journey for the Boston Marathon.

Today’s Monday’s Motivations is dedicated to Rebekah Gregory DiMartino, who is running her first Boston Marathon.  Running your first marathon is always special and even moreso if it is Boston, but what makes DiMartino’s story remarkable is that she was a victim, who ultimately lost her leg, at the Boston Bombing two years ago.  She is an inspiration to all.

Good luck today Rebekah!  The whole nation is behind you.
