"You've got to give it all. Every. Damn. Day."

Great shot, right? We spotted this on Instagram yesterday afternoon and need to know more. We reached out to the photographer, @bestieverchad , for his story and what inspired this image.
Here are his words from our conversation, in 140 character-or-less bursts:
"I'm a runner/triathlete & part time photog. The spikes are Betzy Jimenez's. She is my muse & much of my run inspiration.
"My IG run photos are the journey, travel, & experiences I've had in the past 2 years watching her compete. The track is a HS in San Antonio.
"She qualified for the Oly Trials last year 5k. Now she's in medschool, but still competing. She just ran USA 5k Road Champs.
"My comment is about the drive and determination necessary to achieve your dreams. She's in class giving 100 & on the track giving 100.
"It's every day. Fighting to be great and not watching your chances go by. The LD5000's are the shield and sword."
