What it takes to conquer the impossible

I recently participated in a Spartan Race in the rugged Montana mountains, just outside Glacier National Park. Six miles into the race, I encountered an athlete with a prosthetic leg. My dose of perspective regarding the race suddenly turned 360 degrees. Here was someone doing the impossible. He had proven everyone wrong just by stepping across the start line.
