In the chapter, the author shares some of the things she was unable to do when she was a teen, and the things she has minute memories of such as the tennis team she had joined. With this, she points out that she had a lot of gifts but most of them were far beyond the athletic field. But things changed once she was having their third son, and Dave started getting into shape so that he could participate in the 13-mile half marathon. The move infuriated the author, and thus challenged her to start practicing, and exercise for the next marathon just to prove to herself that she was capable. With this, she wanted to be her own hero, and this is the reason she underwent all the troubles of training for the half marathon. Therefore, the chapter closes with the author affirming that everybody can achieve whatever she aspires provided she had a positive mindset, and has the will to complete whatever they started.
