Thanks, Ben. I have a physical disability and sometimes get discouraged. Today I wanted to skip the gym but this reminded me that I work out in order to do all the other things that make life worth it. Journey, Hope and Love.

What an inspiration. Just Do it! Great video--made me think about the limits I've placed on myself by not trying. Thank you for reminding me anything is possible if I make the effort.

Everytime I watch this my fears seem silly. I pledged to myself to run a 10 miler by March 15th of this year. If Ben made it happen I can do it too.

Life is certainly hard. The hardest things are often the ones that we do to ourselves. Fortunately, as Ben's video shows, the best things are also the things that we do to ourselves. How wonderful that his family was at his side for his journey. You really have to love someone a lot to go that kind of distance! Congrats to all!
