What calls us to excel in sports, to push beyond our limits, to strive for the very best version of who we are? To become our best selves can often be a lonely quest. We will seldom have anyone but ourselves to judge, to know the truth, to spur us on to achieve.
Likewise, the pursuit of honor will rarely provide witness to our acts. At times have to simply answer to something deeper, something far more vast than adulation, perhaps a call from our very spirit. But in rising to that call, we are transformed, reshaped and truly become greater than the sum of our parts.
