Finding Your Greatness

I hope you were able to watch some of the 2022 World Athletics Championships this past week, and were inspired by the effort and achievement of every participant.

Okay, so for us it isn’t about setting world records. Instead it’s about the effort to train and achieve something we may never have though possible--running 26.2 miles!

It's about hope. And courage.

And faith.

It's about measuring the endurance that’s in us today, and discovering the strength that’s possible tomorrow.

And owning that strength is what each of us will do on October 9.

NIKE captured that sentiment best in its “Find Your Greatness” campaign from a couple of years ago—sharing the notion that, "Greatness is not in one special place, and it's not in one special person. Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it."

As you continue your marathon training, my wish for each of you is to have faith that the greatness you are looking for is inside of you, and will be with you as you stand at the “START” on Marathon Day.

At this point, as we begin the second half of this year’s marathon training season, I simply encourage you to do all you can, the best you can… through every remaining training week, and on every remaining training run.

And to carry in your heart these words from Winston Churchill, "Never, never, never, never give up."

(Thank you, Sir Winston.)

Have a (really) good training week ahead, as you to discover and celebrate your greatness. 

And thank you, for ALL that you are doing to train and run and fundraise to support the children and families served by Ronald McDonald House Charities!

Train safe. Run strong.
