“Behind the Fence” Work

“Behind the Fence” Work

Set New Records This Year

For years, I’ve known that Roger Bannister ran the first sub-four-minute mile and that, after this historic accomplishment, other runners soon broke his record in large part because Roger proved it was possible.  What an incredible story right?  I love this...
Making Peace with Hope
