For Clara, because it is hard...
Heather Dorniden could have won without falling down first. If she had she'd still have been the best runner of that race, but few would have remembered the race. Few would have been inspired. What made this race remarkable is that she fell and she ran on anyway.
Faith is like that. The victories are sweeter when they are hard.
So, here we are, Clara, sprawled in the dust. How unexpected was all this?
It hurts, I know. But I also know how you will answer this call. You can not have your heart's desire because your heart has dreamed too small. Something bigger is required.
Get up, Clara. Win this race. She needs you so...
