Thanks to Dave for sharing this video a few days ago; I didn’t have to look hard for a QOTD. There are so many in this video!

I get the most strength from seeing myself at the weakest point. The challenge of being out there and the environment on you, the miles on you, and the physical effort and the mental effort it takes to endure all that. That breaks you down to this kind of weak point. There’s that  sense of ‘raw’…. you’re just stripped down to the bare essentials. And the more miles you cover the more that becomes evident. But the fact that you can do it and keep going shows you how strong you are. And then those lessons applied to life when life takes you down and it’s hard and you feel really weak….you know that you can come back through it and find something to lift you up again. -Krissy Moehl
