On Saturday morning I walked the Daytona 5k. It wasn't my first 5k but it was my first official physical challenge of 2011. My goal in 2011 is to do at least one physical challenge every month. I met Marc Lightner through facebook and twitter (@daytonamarc). Marc was working one of the 5k water stations. He shot the photo below after I walked by the water station. I'm the big guy in the orange shirt. I wrote the words below on Saturday afternoon.
"It's OK that many are ahead of you, running faster. It's OK that many have finished. You're here at the end of the line and it's OK. You're making progress one step at a time. It's OK. You're doing your best. I'm right here. Right behind you. Cheering you on. Giving you the power and the strength to take the next step. If you need to stop and rest, it's OK. I'm proud of you." -- God
