500m RowImagine this is how your early life began…
“[She] was born prematurely at 4.5 lbs., with 21 brothers and sisters, and caught infantile paralysis (caused by the polio virus) as a very young child. She recovered, but wore a brace on her left leg and foot which had become twisted as a result. By the time she was twelve years old, she had also survived scarlet fever, whooping cough, chickenpox and measles. Her family drove her regularly from Clarksville, Tennessee to Nashville, Tennessee for treatments to straighten her twisted leg.”
Now imagine you were Wilma Rudolph, winner of three Olympic gold medals in track, and THAT was your childhood. Imagine what it took to overcome those odds. Imagine the strength it took to believe you could make something of yourself, in spite of everything that was thrown in your path. Imagine if YOU took that determination into your workouts, into your job, and into your life.
“I ran and ran and ran every day, and I acquired this sense of determination, this sense of spirit that I would never, never give up, no matter what else happened.” -Wilma Rudolph
