{happy video} derek redmond in the Barcelona Olympics

Sometimes working out seems like a drag. Sitting on the sofa with a big bag of Doritos and a Coke sounds like so much more fun than strapping on my running shoes and going out there.

When I feel like that though, I know that future me is going to be so annoyed with lazy present me. That is when I watch this video of Derek Redmond in the Barcelona Olympics. He tore his hamstring muscle and fell to the ground in pain but he got up and a man ran towards him from the stands. It was his dad and with his help, Derek finished the race WITH A TORN HAMSTRING. It's amazing how powerful the human spirit can be even in the face of physical calamities.

If you need a little boost, this video is for you.
