The indomitably of the human spirit in the US Army Tenmiler

I witnessed the indomitably of the human spirit during the US Army
Tenmiler on Sunday the 24th of October 2010.

I looked at the first group to leave the start area and thought to
myself how many excuses have kept me from reaching zen that this group
has achieved with their inner being. They have every excuse to stop
and quit but they choose to push forward.

Alena Reta from NYC took the race for the second year straight.  Reta took the lead about a half mile out and never lost it.  The only question was could he keep the pace he was setting.  He kept the pace and first place for the entire 10 miles around Washington.  It was the Alena Reta Show.  There was an exciting foot race for third, fourth and fifth overall.

It was a great race and a great day.
