Yes We Can

Quote of the Day:

"While we breathe, we hope."
- President-Elect Barack Obama

One of the last phrases from Barack Obama's acceptance speech seems remarkably applicable to ultrarunners - as well as to all other Americans. There are obviously enormous challenges that lie ahead, but the immensity of the tasks should never discourage us from trying.

Sometimes it all seems so simple. And hope is a wonderful thing.

No that my fellow Americans have made this choice, it is time to see what we can do together.

The speech was wonderful. I know it's a politician giving a speech, but if in doing so, he can inspire the American people, then it's all good. I have hope...

That was really well said. Hope is a wonderful thing and I find myself filled with the hope and the promise of a huge shift in this country - a shift toward the positive and away from fear based thinking and government.

As Andy Dufresne said in Shawshank Redemption, "...hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."

I'm still so elated that I cry when I think about it. I know this is wrong, but since the election, I want to high-five every black person I pass on the street.

Thank. God.

For the first time in 8 years, I have faith in my country and the voting public again.
