Correr = to run

Running a race is the best parallel for describing testing situations 

I’m a runner. When i go to the gym i run. When i have time i  try to get at least three miles in a day. Nothing clears my mind or makes me feel better than just getting on the treadmill, zoning out and running.  
The closest thing i can compare the way i feel as I’ve pushed through, to the near end of this semester is running. At first it was fine but as you get in mid run you start to become more self aware. You start to feel everything, your feel every breath, you start to question yourself and you’re tempted to slow down the pace. But then you get to this point. That point where you reach this inner threshold. Its the point when your inner strength kicks in.  The Second wind
I’m at the cusp of the second wind because as I near the final day, of an unprecedented litany, of testing I can feel the endorphins kicking in. I feel that burst that will help me push to the end. 
 A beautiful, wise and all together wonderful person told me earlier today [in response to one of my moments of weakness] that ” once you push in the last leg of the race, your sigh of relief will not only be from completion but from victory as well”
-No way I couldn’t have said it any better-
Peace and love
