Tomorrow I'll bring you a recap of my latest, ridiculous stair climbing adventure, but in the meantime watch this video.
I know that the whole "It gets better" campaign is starting to feel like an inundation, but when you watch a touching video like this it really hits home. Put together by the Front Runners New York.

On I went, out of the wood, passing the man leading without knowing I was going to do so. Flip-flap, flip-flap, jog-trot, jog-trot, curnchslap-crunchslap, across the middle of a broad field again, rhythmically running in my greyhound effortless fashion, knowing I had won the race though it wasn't half over, won it if I wanted it, could go on for ten or fifteen or twenty miles if I had to and drop dead at the finish of it, which would be the same, in the end, as living an honest life like the governor wanted me to. -Alan Sillitoe, "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"
