Sticking it out, through obstacles and difficulties and even boredom. Martin Parnell, the semi-retired mining engineer from Cochrane, Alberta, recently finished his quest to run 250 marathons in 2010! Can you imagine? He originally wanted to run 365 marathons in 365 days, but his doctor said no.

When asked about his quest Parnell reported that parts of quest were “boring” as he accomplished his goal. See, that even boredom is the path to greatness!

Sometimes we quit, not because the mountain is too high or because the obstacles are too large, but because we are bored walking through the low parts. Soooooo….. Stick it out!
