What is stamina?

The Webster’s dictionary defines it as endurance.

I’ve always thought stamina was the runner who hits the wall but pushes on.

Some morning rides are harder than others, so I push on with the goal to finish.

Stamina helps move through the daily simple, repetitive route of trees, autos, squirrels, chipmunks, and white trucks with ladders rattling on the roof.

But LIFE throws a lot of things at us and stamina helps us make it through.

Through compromises, changing directions, meeting challenges, or enduring pain we wake up the next morning and begin again.
