Recently, I caught a story on the news about a young girl who was running in her State Cross Country Meet. She misstepped resulting in the breakage of the tibia and fibula. Crumbling to a heap on the ground, she crawls for a bit and then returns to her feet in an attempt to reach the finish line only to collapse again. She then decides to crawl on her hands and knees for the final eight yards to the finish line.
...Delayed, but she refused to be denied!
