We gathered together, all with one goal in mind. To finish. Every step apart of the journey. Each mile one more closer home, each obstacle a lesson. Some for ourselves and some to remind us that we are all in this together. We gathered for the challenge. We gathered to test the limits of who we are, so we can defy the limits of who we will become. We gathered to become weak before we would become strong. We gathered as many parts of a whole. We gather to find meaning, purpose and answers. And most of the time what we find is we are all just the same....all parts gathered for a different mission in a greater cause. Thankful.
