I just wanted to take a minute to point out an amazing article I read recently in the current issue of Runners World that is on news-stands now. The article I am referring to is with the tremendous athlete Kara Goucher. She is featured on their fabulous cover:

This article is not just for runners or athletes, or people who are on diets or trying to lose some weight. This article is for people who want to learn about perseverance and what it takes to keep going.
You get a chance to take a glimpse into the personal struggles of Kara’s life and career and how she overcame them and is still managing to battle the demons everyday.
Have you ever felt like giving up? Have you ever felt like you were not good enough? Have you ever felt like you never going to be where you think you should be? It doesn't matter if you are a runner or not to take away the great lessons from this amazing woman and her amazing coaching team. It may be your career (remember…to her, this IS her career, it’s not an article on how to just keep running!), your relationship, your diet….at some point you question yourself and if you can keep moving forward. The answer always is that *you can*!
I really recommend that people take a minute and check this out. It definitely opened my eyes and gave me a little bit of strength and hope that I *can* keep going forward.
