Then I read the story of Gunhild Sawnson who completed the Western States 100-mile race with just 6 seconds to spare before the 30 hour cut-off time to earn the finisher's buckle and the title of the oldest finisher in the race's 42 year history.

Read the story. Watch the finish line video. I dare you not to get teary-eyed and inspired. It reminded me about why I run. It's for the love of sport; it's for passion; I run with my heart. I just needed a reminder.
