It's Great to Be Alive

I love these videos. Not only do they showcase absurd feats of all forms being performed, but they depict people of all shapes and sizes performing those feats. There are people in wheelchairs doing things that I wouldn't even dream of doing with a body that still has the use of its legs. They're also way more athletic than us weightlifting folk, bar none.

The other component I find fascinating, is you can literally feel the excitement that many of these folks experience when they finally accomplish the "thing" they're attempting.

Who knows how many iterations of failed attempts, and hours upon hours of practice and frustration, it took for them to finally complete their task successfully.

But at the end of the day, you can see all of them enjoying the simple beauty of life itself and pushing themselves to do things they once questioned were even possible. 

It's great to be alive, isn't it?
