For hundreds of thousands of runners, breaking 2 hours in the half marathon is the goal they fight for. It requires grit, determination, perseverance, and patience because for so many of us, it takes year to break through that mental barrier. And this weekend, after we launched Project 1:59, I saw first hand how difficult it is to believe in yourself when you don't think you can do it. I want to take a second to celebrate all the runners who try, fall short, and dare to try time and time again.
