Random #3- Race the Tube

This evening I came across a pretty random video that made me smile and also feel a bit emotional, and I wanted to share it with you.

A Londoner, James Heptonstall  filmed his overground sprint from Mansion House to Cannon Street station. He had 80 sec to climb 75 steps, go across two gates and run a 380m sprint before getting back on the train.

Why did this make me emotional? Because this man has set himself a goal, probably trained a lot, asked himself why he was doing this to himself, felt pain, gave it his all and completely smashed it in the end. I can relate to that. Can you?
