What's your excuse?

I was having a slightly blah moment just now (why's not important), when someone just reminded me of Jared Horomona, Body-for-LIFE Inspirational Champion in 2001.

I remember looking at Jared's photos and thinking "well, he could have picked a better background - the car's a bit distracting". Then I read his story, and discovered that he was using the car for support - because he has cerebral palsy and can't stand unaided.

You can read Jared's story here.

His acceptance speech was apparently only 3 words: "What's your excuse?"

OK, I'm going for a run. Now.
