Why The Olympics Inspire Me

The Olympic Games inspire me because they bring out the best in so many people. Usain Bolt, Dara Torres, Michael Phelps. Even the insanely gifted work their asses off to get to this level.

When a champion struggle and fail, as Liu Xiang has with his Achille's injury, its heartbreaking for everyone that cares about achievement more than nationalism. I hope he can make it back to the top of the heap.

When I see people reach so far, it encourages me in terms of how far I could take things. Why? Because they're showing that limits of human performance are higher than we imagined. And maybe our own abilities can take us further than we thought too.

Keep on stretching!
