Many of you may remember me posting this video before St. Jude. Whether or not you’ve watched it, watch it again!

You owe it to yourself to take the 6 minutes it takes to watch this video. There is rarely a race in which one of us starts to have some negative thoughts or gets a little down on ourselves. Well, when you start to doubt yourself, just remember “Yes you can!”

I distinctly remember climbing a hill at mile 18 in San Antonio and i was really doubting myself and my ability. I tried hard ALL day not to have negative thoughts but it gets tough sometimes. I remembered this video and the autographed picture Keith gave me for my birthday. I thought, if the Hoyts can do this and so much more, surely i can give it a little more. Yes i can!

Can you do this? Can you handle the heat in Nashville? Can you conquer the hills? Can you complete the 13.1 miles feeling proud and strong? YES YOU CAN!
