Real life blade runner Oscar Pistorius finished his last race at the 2012 Olympics. He finished in last place of the 400 meter semi-finals. What place he placed in didn’t matter. It’s the fact he got there is what makes it special. I honestly haven’t seen him race before last night. I only saw him as the guy with no legs out of context in Nike ads. It’s impressive to see a man run that fast in an advertisement. But when you put him on the worlds stage vs other guys. I finally saw everything in context. What he has achieved is amazing for any human being.

The courage to try for something when you know you don’t have what others have. To believe in yourself and see yourself in another context before anyone else can to me is why this guy is an inspiration.
