Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Endure: To tolerate. To put up with. To go the distance. To last. To not give up. To deal with. To remain.
For those headed toward Hopkinton, over HeartBreak Hill, and on to Boston…
Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters…enjoy the course. Enjoy the experience. Embrace your happy tears and bask in the cheering crowds.
Embrace the sweat.
Embrace the perfect result of your Finish.
