This weekend is the Marine Corp Marathon.
In the US, the MCM is a huge race. Every year, I have a number of friends who do the race.
I also have friends who are in the military, stationed around the world. They run the "shadow" race.
This year, I have two friends who will be running the shadow MCM in Kabul. The race is 17 laps around the embassy, 6500 feet of elevation gain and up and down a 2 story parking garage......for every lap.
The next time you do a race and think you can't go on, think of those women and men running in Kabul.
