This is the spirit of meeting a Challenge

The Austin LIVESTRONG Challenge, organized by the Lance Armstrong Foundation, took place last weekend. The stories of inspiration, sense of community, and feeling of accomplishment are coming back as the participants settle back into their regular lives. Among the accounts of that weekend is one by a man named Brendan as summarized in his entry on his Go By Bike! blog. He shot video of the ride itself, with a particularly inspiring moment at about the 11-minute mark in this video:

For me, this exemplifies the notion of facing a personal challenge, whether related to cancer or not, and conquering it.
