Are We There Yet?

Last weekend I ran the Denver Marathon, I did not get the finishing time I was hoping for, training for, but it was still a good time, 3:31.
Do you ever study really hard for a test or put in a lot of time on a project and not get the result you were hoping for?
I learn something every time I compete. You learn something every time you are faced with task. We don't always end up with the results we want, even though we put our all into it.
I don't give up and you shouldn't either! We are all a work in progress!
Describe an experience that really tested you and you were able to grow from that experience. Thanks for sharing!
