I love it at the end when the little boy is running with him.

Thanks for posting that Marv. I think it's natural to take things for granted sometimes. But maybe this kind of thing can help bring some perspective to people's lives. Not to be a jerk, but it's the kind of reason I don't go around patting people on the back because they lifted some weights.

It reminds me of a certain someone who gets his ass kissed by the lifting community coming out with a rant about his "passion" for lifting and how that makes him SO superior to someone who doesn't do things exactly the way he does. Oh, look at me I have a PASSION for something. Then he goes on to say how if he can't give it his all he doesn't even bother, blah blah because he is just so all or nothing.

Who the fuck cares about your passion and whether you want to workout or not? Anyone think that guy had the LUXURY to rant about his workouts and dwell on his dedication? Sometimes we look up to the wrong people.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

That definately lifted me up today Marv, and helped to put some shit in perspective. Not to sound corney or cliche, but it really makes you look at your life, and the problems you have, and the shit that is stressing you, and you realize how stupid most of it is.

Thanks for posting that.

Amazing video Marv. Thanks for posting. Its good to see people never give up. I was told when I broke my hand that I wouldn't be able to lift the amout of weight I used to before. Well I gotta say I'm getting close already, just gotta get the damn belly flab to disappear

It is great to see people refuse to be held back. Any idea what happened to him? Seeing him jumping and the smile on his face brought tears to my eyes. His determination is just amazing. Thanks, Marv.
