Endeavor diver

Anil Gurung from the UK dives off the blocks during a practice for the Endeavor Games at UCO’s Hamilton Field House in Edmond on Thursday, June 9, 2011.

An assignment from my first week at The Oklahoman was to shoot competitors in the Endeavor Games as they got warmed up the day before the start of the games.

I was happy to hear that I was being sent out to Edmond to cover the games because I actually shot the same event two years ago while I was at the Edmond Sun.

It never ceases to encourage me when I see people overcoming obstacles that I can’t imagine and doing it with great spirit. Anything that can remind me to be thankful is a good thing and the people working in and for the Endeavor Games were certainly great reminders.
