We are able

During our lives, we are influenced by our surroundings, they shape us and ultimately define our sets of inner perception. By interacting since childhood with our parents, teachers and pretty much with every person we are being molded into the people that we are. These experiences shapes our believes and determines our way of thinking for a considerable amount of time. Although some believe that most of the "programming" is done in an early age I believe that some of the influence can come later in life- even in adulthood.

One of the "later" insights that I have discovered in life is that our body is a miraculous machine. I believe that physically our body is able to do more than we think and believe that we can, it is not a "thought over matter", psychological tricks or magic- we are just not aware, we can do more!

I felt that I am about to brake but for some reason it kept on going and going, fuel by nothing but the thought that I need to go on. Specifically I had this feeling and it's strongest affects when I needed to run for miles and miles after not getting enough sleep.

As mentioned above, the training that was provided included running for great distances with more than 80 lb of equipment strapped on to you. Being a high school gradual I have participate in sporting event at school that included running and team sports, however I have never thought that I will be able to do the same thing without running shoes, comfort cloths and with additional weight that will probably cause back problems.
