It’s All About Perspective

On Sunday I completed the Big Sur International Marathon in California. After the race, I was lucky enough to bump into Jesus Carlos, the winner of the race. We shared race times (his – 2:20, mine – 5:54), talked about the spectators and marveled at the amazing scenery – you know, the kinda banter you would expect from such high performance athletes after a big event.

“I must admit, you are really my hero.” I told him.

“Why would that be?” he responded, a bit surprised.

“Well, it is just incredible that you could finish the race in only 2 hours and 20 minutes!” I exclaimed.

“No, Rick, YOU are MY hero!” he responded.

“Uh, I don’t understand. How could that be?” I asked.

“I just can’t imagine how anyone would run anywhere for 6 hours!!”
