Congratulations on a race well run! You fought to the finish, you faced the mountains you had to face, you pushed yourself to the edge and beyond – you finished well.
You may never wear the yellow jersey, you may never be Lance Armstrong (hard to imagine there could be more than one!) but you DID IT!
All those other people who accomplished such an incredible feat, and the only name we know is Lance. Too bad. But I guess life’s like that – we don’t celebrate the “ordinary”, we only celebrate the “victor”.
Today, my fellow bloggers, let’s look beyond the victor and celebrate those who run well, cycle with heart, and live with grace and integrity.
I celebrate my children who cycled to church today. No, they’re not little Lances, but they did well and I’m proud of them.
