Show us what endurance means to you. Is it that high-school diploma, beads of sweat earned on a long run, a treasured family heirloom, or something else entirely?

As we sift through fleeting status updates, toss yet another egg carton in the recycling bin, and watch as seasons change around the world, it can seem like life is made of constant change.

On a recent trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, we toured Mayan ruins in Tulum. These weathered stone remnants gave me pause. The’ve stood for 800 years of wind, sun, and rain — yet still they endure — a silent testament to and celebration of Mayan culture and ingenuity.

Share a photo of what endurance means to you — maybe it’s your beat-up, well-traveled running shoes, the oldest structure in your town, the vista you earned climbing that mountain, a photo of your wedding ring, or your dog, tongue lolling, running full out.
