This is a long video (52 minutes), but is very inspirational! I am going to show it to my Biology class. Enjoy!

Any chance it can be related to Language Arts? hehe; I'll be looking for something "light" for them to do when they are drowning in state testing.

I can't believe I am admitting this, cause I have no life. I really just sat and watch the entire thing. I am so glad I did, it was very movtivating. Thanks

I watched the whole thing and CRIED when they crossed the finish line. I cry every time I watch people finishing a marathon. I will run my first 1/2 marathon this Sunday, and I'm sure I'll cry like a baby when I finish, too. What is it about the marathon that just captures the emotions so strongly?
