Yesterday while monitoring my Twitter feed for nuggets of goodness, I discovered via NikeRunning this dude Jason Lester, a mega-endurance athlete who is biking and running his way across the country for Nike. Check this out:
WOW! That’s incredible. Oh did I mention he biked 80 miles on Tuesday! Oh and did I mention his right arm is paralyzed?
This guy is biking and running from Nike Store to Nike Store to promote Nike’s Better World promotion. You can learn more and follow Jason here and here. Being a runner myself, I am pretty amazed at the endurance and drive this guy has. You can see a short clip of his story here.
What I really love, and I can see why, is that he ends a lot of his tweets with the hashtag #TeamNeverStop! Which is also the name of a foundation his has started. What a monster and what an inspiration to keep going.
If you are finding it hard to get through the challenges in front of you, maybe it will help to think about Jason out on the road grinding it out and that will give you some motivation to Never Stop!
That’s sort of like what the prophet Azariah told Asa
7But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7 New International Version (NIV)
and what Paul told Timothy
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. 2 Tim 1:7 (AMP)
Rise and Grind!
