inspiring Video: Race of Life

Dear ETs,

Here's an inspiring video of a runner who fell during her indoor middle distance but managed to get up and against all odds, to pip the first leading runner to eventually win the event.

This video would make a good discussion with our students about life -- when one falls to get up and continue running. A good question to ask is what if the runner did not get first place, what could she do?  What would the students do?

This video is suitable as a warmer or just a clip to inspire students to go on inspite failing the first time.

  1. The most excellent thing. Two far-fetched individuals begin to look all starry eyed at each other. This video of 10 minutes and 43 seconds will take your heart away.
