  1. Trust me man. This was pure art. This 10 min video felt years and hours for some reason. Thank you.

  2. I have a dream since my childhood that I have not given up and sometimes I feel ridiculous for it. This video has helped me understand myself better.

  3. Yooo Ryan it’s Austin! Amazing depth and quality in this introduction, love it. You rock brother

  4. “We all must suffer one of two pains. The pain of discipline, and the pain of regret. Discipline weighs ounces, while regret weighs tons.” Jim Rohn

  5. Yesterday is history
    tomorrow is a mystery
    today is the present
    and that’s why it’s A Gift

  6. We’re all in the same game
    just different levels
    dealing with the same hell
    just different devils

  7. Interesting edutainment motion picture. No wonder he has enough time and energy to run these marathons over the years. He’s been a millionaire before 2016, and no longer had to work for money anyone.

  8. Another masterpiece!! I’m trying to figure out the song that 9:56, It would be amazing if you could help me out!

  9. An Inspiration for Young Kids to never ever ever give up in their Dream’s Thankyou so much casey neistat For Such an inspirational Video for us Much love From Pakistan And a Huge fan❤❤❤

  10. I’ve never watched any of Casey’s videos before but of course, I knew who he was and how huge he was. Today I understood why.

  11. This is peak Casey content
    I may not be able to run again just yet, but this shit sure as hell made me want to lol
    Incredible shit as always, makes me very happy to see you do it, with the flag on your hat nevertheless!
    Congrats Casey

  12. I think this is why it’s called YouTube, it’s about “You”. Thank you Casey, love the video ❤

  13. A little note to my future kids if I ever get any: this is why Casey is one of the greatest content creators of all time. I hope we all get to meet him one day.

  14. So much about this video is beautiful, genius, highest of the highest quality of vlogging. Vlogs are alive and well and Casey show us that. This video inspires me in so many ways, not only because I plan on running my 8th marathon this year but because I’ve been a full-time content creator for over 12 years. I’m inspired to keep playing the long game. Casey is an expert at the long-game. Don’t give up, friends! Keep going! 🏃🏻‍♂️🤘

  15. Just WOW!!! The most inspirational video, I’ve seen from you Casey! This is the push I needed to continue streaming!! Thank You!

  16. this is a strange feeling where i lean in and let the pillaging transpire, my opp isnt here anymore, and there’s simply no point in serenading the veiled and deaf, to each their precious own

  17. First started following Casey on YouTube when I was training for the 2022 New York City Marathon, this is such a good video. It proves that you should never give up on your own personal dream. Thank you for such an inspiring video and never giving up. God bless.

  18. Really a side question but did he use a pacer for the last marathon? The black guy taking the pic?

  19. Casey ! Did you get your rod removed ?? I have one in my femur and man it hurts the bolts to run.

  20. At 9:50 I was devastated saying, “No… please… you can not… “.
    At 10:30 I was thrilled yelling, “Yay! FU*K YE! MOTHERFU*CKER!!!”

    Have watched this so many times. Still got goosebumps every time.

    Thank Casey for such an amazing masterpiece.

  21. Trained over 1 year for my first marathon. A few weeks prior I got a cold that also affected my joints. Couldn’t run for 2 miles without limping. It’s hard to accept that. And even harder to accept that it’s not a „defeat“ but you should be grateful for how fit and healthy you are, regardless if you can run 26 miles or not.

  22. I clicked on this, half asleep, thinking the first word was syphilis.
    Pleasantly surprised by what I found.

  23. That’s so amazing!!! So much hard work and dedication went into that and it was all earned!! Congrats!

  24. Great job man! Big congrats!
    I don’t know how about you, but I’m 48 yrs YOUNG! Ich bin 48 Jahre YUNG!

  25. Thanks to Martin from Wintergatan for recommending this video. This video is really special because it’s very inspiring. I’m sure that it will help a lot of people, and who knows, maybe it could even influence the future of the world itself. Thank you for sharing this with us.

  26. I almost shed a tear, I’m 22 started watching you when I was around 13 this may have been my favorite video you. You’re a blessing bro.

  27. This is why everyone should randomly record the times in their life at their convenience. You don’t even have to be a filmmaker, just having the memories of that particular day can be useful one day.

  28. Casey is definitely the best storyteller on Youtube. Congratulations realizing your dream!

  29. Casey do you have plans to make daily or weekly wlogs again someday? We missed your wlogs 😊

  30. Haha really inspiring video💪🏻I have the same goal😊 48 now and the strong feeling that i will make it in the next 2 years😃

  31. I feel like I have watched every video he put out but I missed the one where he got in that accident and had to put a steel rod in his leg.

  32. i can’t tell you how inspired i am. this video does show us why you are one of THE best storytellers out there. i don’t usually leave comments but this video might be the one that’s pushing me to follow my dreams!

  33. I felt more of an emotional journey in this short YouTube video than I have in any movie ever.
    Congrats on making your time. You’re an inspiration.

  34. THIS was an absolutely fantastic video, Casey! amazing, and thank you for the mind-blowing inspiration.

  35. The insane amount of mental and physical strength required to endure to the end! 🙌🏼 Loved everything about this video.

  36. Holy shit this was an absolute movie, congratulations & never stop being that inspirational ass person you are. Love it!

  37. This was incredibly satisfying. Thank you for sharing this story so perfectly and thank you for not QUITTING

  38. Casey is very inspiring in living with passion and never to give up even when life punches you in your teeth

  39. I’m not a runner but watching this was awesome, I’m a golfer and it’s hard but I love it!!!!

  40. Hey Cassie, I’m just wondering how things are in NYC? I know you love that city and I remember your video when you stated who you voted for. I’m curious if your views have changed at all?

    Best wishes

  41. Thid video gave me goosebumps I don’t think so when it comes to story telling anyone could be better then casey i wont even write period because no one good be so good at cinema and storytelling better then casey ❤️

  42. You are truly an inspiration to everyone who has lost hope. Great story and perseverance.

  43. Congratulations sir! That is an amazing, inspirational, feel good story if I’ve ever seen one and I love it!

  44. You inspired me to start a Youtube channel and vlogging. Just posted my first video now! Thanks for everthing

  45. You are SO inspirational. Love your work and your SPIRIT. Never lose this Casey ❤

  46. Bro that “FUK THAT” and the not giving up at the end omg dude. This is legendary content…from a legendary human.

  47. Beyond inspired seeing this,Thank you Casey for not giving up. We all have been touched by this

  48. I really needed this 🙂 struggling with my own impossible dream more than I ever have right now, thank you so much!

  49. When I broke my wrist I was told ”you can never lift again or do push-ups again” I made it my goal to prove them wrong and I did. Science can’t take in account a persons drive and ambition. Good job Casey!

  50. This film would keep me running till the last energy molecule. Thanks. I love this documentary stylistic

  51. Big YouTubers will come and go, but Casey Neistat will always remain the OG and this video just shows why. I cried while watching this one! LEGEND

  52. This is why i subscribed in the first place. It has been years now since then and everything you put out here is just art, heart, and inspiration. Thank you casey and congratulations. Will try again and again for my goal. ❤

  53. It’s raining and my tiny little son kept me awake last night and I’m just watching YouTube to avoid going out to finish the house facade.

    I didn’t expect to all of a sudden be pumped so hard my ears are pounding! Fuck the rain and the sleeplessness, let’s do this!!!

  54. What a fkn inspiring video you’re truly one of the best YouTube content creators out there man!

  55. I am bloody sick and tired of this type of motivational videos, only because that I know for a fact that 90% of the commentators in the comment section do not follow any of those advices, watch multiple similar type of video, get some dopamine boost with the motivation, and and go back to the YouTube. And it’s like a circle of loop.

    It’s definitely nothing against casey, it is the people who watches his video. You know who you are. Just do it. And stay hard.

  56. I just clapped for you. All alone. In my office. Thank you for sharing this video. Thank you for sharing your life.

  57. 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  58. I was so invested during this video! What a rollercoaster of a video! In the best possible way

  59. “oh fuck that” This made my day, I really mean it, I’m passing a rough time and figuring out if a can do things or not.

  60. Will you be talking about the Migrants coming to NYC and how different it is over there now? or do you feel that nothing has change and NYC feels the same as always?

  61. Congrats on making your goal. Amazing storytelling, as a viewer, all the years never knew this was the goal and it makes the whole seeing you run and train over the years and be passionate about it, it’s just all epic.

  62. Casey you didn’t fail 24 times before you broke the 3:00 barrier you were a winner 24 times, each time you won because you finished the marathon and you decided to keep trying! Well done!!! what a great video!

  63. I have always wondering why people hurt themselves so bad to enter a marathon. But you just answered the question a lot 🎉

  64. What a video! Way to give it your all after all these years. Keep up the good work Casey.

  65. Good sht Casey. Props to the idea of this video. The point hit me harder than Tyson and a bag.

  66. Heard about Casey for years but never got a chance to watch his content. This was my first video. What an absolute legend

  67. Can we talk about that moving company for a minute though… Lost my bed, my beer glass collection to cases of books and my custom table legs… Told me it was my fault.

  68. Has some of the running accident footage been uploaded to a previous vlog? I’m having Deja vu of seeing it before😂

  69. Didn’t think I’d be tearful at the end of this, but I’m so fucking proud of you, bud. Well done!

  70. When Casey said “I’m just not that guy” I said…. “NAH FUCK THAT” Then Casey said it right after, BOII I GOT SO HYPED. I’m hitting the gym right now.

  71. Thanks Casey Neistat for leading by example and relentlessly pursuing your dream. Congratulations!

  72. Everyone should know sysyphus got what he wanted and became a one dimensional god and was happy about it. So…

  73. Was there support for all your Big Dreams or was it all from inside of You? (Thanks for this video BTW, I needed it today)

  74. I’m properly obsessed with this and everything you said hit so close to home. Love you Casey! 👏🏼🚀

  75. No matter how long, no matter how dumb of a goal it may look to everyone, no matter what…never give up 🤍

  76. Holy shit this is one of the best Casey Neistat videos of all time! Such incredible storytelling! You’re a master bro!

  77. Usually, I dont ever leave comments on anything , but this video being just marvellous and combining philosophy/storytelling in a neat vlog, gotta comment for da algorithm.

  78. the hell it’s been a week but I still kept coming back to this vid. God how I dream to be like you.

  79. Casey creates Art! This is a real contrant creator and an even better human! I’m inspired to try and work towards running a marathon myself now

  80. Man somehow you made my day! I had a bad day, too many thoughts. You’re king 🕺🔥

  81. Great job and real hard work. Please keep the scamming POS out of your videos. For what you represent… association with that tool brings you down a peg. Albeit to a pointless youtuber like me. but still.

  82. Casey I was considering quiting cross country u helped me realise don’t quit my passion thank you dude ❤

  83. The chills when you get back up to persevere after NYC. One of your best and most motivating videos in years Casey! What an accomplishment

  84. You have no idea how much I needed to see that today, right at this moment. 53 and contemplating am I that guy, should I just call this quits?

    Now I might never be that guy, but this video reminds me that doesn’t mean I quit, ever. F**k that.

    Congrats and thanks, for everything, all the inspiration over the years. And thank you for the reminder today.

    So, back to the drawing board for me. Literally.

  85. Best YouTuber ever. Been watching every single one of your video like a daily tv show since you started your vlogs. We need you back in this community. I got emotional watching this episode. You’re so inspiring!

  86. What a stupid video. Stupid exercise goals are stupid. Go unloads a truck and get paid to do it if you want some exercise.

  87. Calling Casey a youtuber is a travesty. Casey is a filmmaker. What a story mate, congratulations on achieving a personal milestone. Your storytelling is fantastic.

  88. You are one of my insperations to start my YT channel, congratz on the sub 3 min!!!

  89. @CaseyNeistat I have never run a marathon. If I enter the New York Marathon, could I crash on your couch for a day or two while I am in NYC?

  90. Congrats Casey! I’m crying! Maybe I’m a little emotional cause I’m training for a marathon rn

  91. Many years after I first watched one of your videos, you keep surprising me with your talent in filmmaking and you keep being a great motivator. Cudos dear Casey, congrats for your latest great achievement

  92. I’ve been a long-time fan of yours, and you always have a talent for making great content.. I would say this is one is one of your best. Congrats on your marathon time and thank you for your inspirational video

  93. I just got into a motorcycle accident this week. Wasnt to bad, just some torn ab muscles. But it has made me want to try harder to get the body I want, since for a few moments I thought I never could try again.

    Live today like any other day, to the fullest.

  94. This is not a video. This is a movie. And it’s the best movie I’ve seen in years. Got me crying from 5’:25 until the end. 🙏

  95. Casey. I have been watching your videos for years. This is my first comment. You always run in them lol. This really gives a new perspective. Congratulations. I’m thrilled for you.

  96. This video literally inspired me so much. I’m in college right now, and I have this dumb belief that probably around my 40s I won’t be able to achieve things anymore especially physically. It’s had me pretty nervous about the future. This video has changed my mindset Thank you for this video and inspiring me to keep pushing and follow my dreams.😅

  97. This makes me so HAPPY!!

    I was very relieved when in the middle of the video you said “Fuck That!”

  98. Did he say “motorcycle accident” bro. Wtf. Running is the way to life. In a world where life is soooo darn long and science is the key running miles is the best.

  99. I was so surprised to see you come to Tucson. I hope you enjoyed your stay. Truly inspirational!

  100. I keep thinking about this video a lot. There are people in this world 🌎 who have an impact ,you are one of those people. I think you should get in contact with Clint Eastwood and have him make a movie 🎬 🎞 🎥 about your life. You and your lovely family should play yourselves also. Thank you for videos 💜😎

  101. I don’t think I’ve ever commented on one of your videos, but this made me smile and really happy. I was so sad when you said you would not do it, I’m a former runner and know that feeling well. Congrats!

  102. If there’s only one person in the whole world who can literally push someone out of a comfortable bed to hustle and achieve their goal, it would definitely be you Casey. I can’t thank you enough, I’m just glad that you exist🙇🏻🙌🏻

  103. Damn this is how I felt when I finally completed Spartan Ultra at Killington VT, took me 7 years of coming so close then finally! Indescribable feeling. Congrats Casey! I’ll take any of your marathon time any day 😂

  104. CONGRATULATIONS CASEY! ITS THAT OLD SAYING… DISCIPLINE AND HARD WORK ALWAYS PAYS OFF!!!

  105. Casey this is amazing what you have done this years about your building your carrier on youtube and how amazing you are on that to continues improving

  106. I cannot begin to fathom running this many marathons and being so close to 3 hours and be like “nah, not good enough, I’m running it again.”

  107. Casey if there’s one documentary that will never be told but will create such a golden tree on law enforcement is the lapd, you need to do this doc.

  108. I have grown with you Casey.
    Once I was 16, now I am 24 and yet what i take away from you at every age is ever so relevant.
    Let’s keep running brother.

  109. I realised I had tears rolling down my cheeks at the end of the video. And then felt like crying my heart out for no reason. Thanks, felt happy for no reason. Loved it. Knew who you were, might have watched a video here and there, guess, it’s time to press that Subscribe button ♥

  110. I got emotional. Congrats Casey, not just for the 2:57 but for the work you put on it. Beast.

  111. After watching this, I think I could never be able to find a better youtube video 🙌🏻

    You rock, Casey!!

  112. I thought Candice was the impossible dream. In this story this just went from impossible to reality :- )

  113. Man, I absolutely fkin loved this! Just the right resilience, relentlessness and discipline can get you so damn far!! More power to you, casey! ❤

  114. What an amazing video. Thank you for keeping us motivated. In every way, shape or form!!! Killin it Casey, thanks for being you.

  115. This VERY week I said “I am 51 years and there is no one on this whole earth that inspires me anymore”.

    Then comes Casey and proves me wrong. I don’t even like running.

    Your storytelling and your never give up spirt are definitively inspiring Casey. You are a lightbringer. Thank you so much. ❤️

  116. You’re such an inspiration! I’m so happy to have decided to share a tattoo with you. Your mindset me has taken me from a humble region in Brazil, to the most prestigious consulting firm in the world, to one of the best mba schools in the world. Keep running Casey

  117. Broke my tibia/ fibula badly nearly two years ago. My only hobbies were basically different sports/ gym before then, and only really starting to be able to run again now. Thanks for the inspiraton, 5k is the current goal.. we will see what happens from there

  118. Loved this video so much, I had my kids watch it for homeschooling. I’m glad you didn’t give up! Beautiful work of art!

  119. except Sisyphus never reached the top and never escaped and your purpose was never in coming in under 3 hours but in failing and trying and now your boulder is no more. So are you really happy?

  120. MAN I HAVEN’T FINISHED THE VIDEO YET BUT SHIT THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO I HAVE WATCHED SO FAR

  121. What an incredible achievement! You’re an absolute legend and an inspiration to many 🔥

  122. Not sure where he has this idea he is a failure for not accomplishing certain goals. Not a fan of the video.

  123. casey uncle you are the real example for:
    try again fail again and fail better
    age is just a number
    and this whole video just felt like you lost again and again and again your light are cut off but you stil looking at your dream reviewing it every day and saying yourself it’s not over until i win

  124. Congratulations Casey… I know you don’t need my approval, but I’m genuinely proud of you. Well done.

  125. Congrats Casey ,not only on the 2.57 but that film. Wow! What an inspirational film. No one watching this could feel anything but motivated.

  126. Nevertheless, the old guy in the last marathon after you is a bad ass runner, but happy for you to get the impossible dream achieved

  127. The bro gets to live through the most beautiful redemption arc in his real life! Beautiful!!! 🤟

  128. Casey, thank you for creating this amazing video. It only goes to show how far hard effort and perseverance can carry you—it’s quite inspiring. I’m definitely motivated and eager to go for a run after seeing this.

  129. You’ve always been an inspiration to me casey!. Former New Yorker now I’m back to the Philippines to fulfill my Dreams. Thank you for pushing me through your videos.

  130. Man you’re a true inspiration. I’m struggling with hip impingement and ankle instability which makes it very painful to exercise. But this video gave me hope that I might fix it one day.

  131. 🙏🙏 thank you for everything casey, watching your videos studying in NY and rnn working as tech engineer. You were indeed the best content creator I’ve ever seen 🙌.

  132. The fucking SECOND I saw the mustache, I knew that goal was crushed. Absolute assassin

  133. Fair play! I did my first marathon in belfast in 2023 in 4 hours 47:53, even completing a marathon is a win! you won so many times!!

  134. Congrats!! Sub 3 is an amazing feat. One of the many reason why running is one of the greatest sports out there. Well done.

  135. Albert Camus: “The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.”

  136. I think Casey’s NYC 3:01 time should be what Casey is more proud of. It’s the race that got him to the starting line of Tuscon knowing he had it in him. Tuscon is also a much easier course (2,000 ft of decline vs. the hilly NYC course). Love the story and how to never shy away from your dreams!

  137. 31 and trying to break 3:30 this May, partly because you inspired me to start running many years ago Casey, thanks for that 🙏!

  138. The storytelling of Casey videos is just insane, just brilliant. Casey and Johnny Harris are the top greatest Youbers that I have seen. Thanks for sharing.

  139. Thank you for making this video, I almost gave up on my Youtube dream after trying and trying for 4+ years but today it’s ignited my spirits once again and I AM READY TO FAIL AGAIN!!! Bless you man.

  140. I am currently at the lowest point of my life and could not think of anything that could motivate me, but after watching Casey accomplish the goal he had, even after failing multiple times made me realize that maybe life is nothing but constantly failing until you win. I think that doing something, even if you fail will get you closer to success. As someone said ” Regret of not doing anything is much more painful than the feeling of failure.”

  141. For me this goal is to complete an Ironman distance triathlon. I needed this today. Injuries and surgery and excuses have kept me out of the game. My failure muscle is strong. Thanks Casey. You’ve been inspiring me since before youtube.

  142. I’m here for the Greek mythology, Greek Spartan 💪 thanks Casey for the many years of entertainment ❤

  143. This is just pure art. Hands down, probably the best video I’ve ever seen on the platform. Thank you, Casey.

  144. I started running 2 years ago, after getting inspired from watching too many vlogs of Casey, where he’s obsessed with running. Now, I am obsessed too! Just finished my fastest half marathon last week. Will definitely run a full marathon in 3 hours someday soon enough or later.

  145. Candice is awesome. Her goals are your goals, and your goals are her goals.

    This video is about finding that person who’s your biggest fan.

  146. One of the best videos I’ve ever seen in my life. To the greatest YouTuber/creator of all time CASEY, from a different league ❤.

  147. Man, i cried watching ur video. Feel so happy about u, like i did this all myself. U r great ❤💪

  148. I looove that you used music from Charlotte Adigéry and Bolis Pupul! Gave me the chills!

  149. incredible feelings. I cried. You show all of us what does it mean set up goal and achieve it!

  150. Will power. What you’ll learn as you get older is; most things come down to that.
    One more thing; get help sooner in life. Alone is not the best option.

  151. Exactly what I needed right now, this very moment. Planning to run my first marathon this year, I hope to achieve it and carry on the mentality to not give up. Thank you for this masterpiece of a video Casey!

  152. having hugely and miserably failed recently… thanks Casey, helped me thru… next step: get back up and punch harder !
    love ur videos mann, inspiring <3... keep it up ! Love from India.

  153. I think Casey is amazing, but unfortunately, not everyone can do it. If it took him 25 marathons, it would take me 50. Not everyone has that much strength, unfortunately.

  154. You never fail to surprise and amaze with your story telling and video making skills. I was totally lost in the video. G.O.A.T 😍😍

  155. You’re a badass Casey! Mad respect and love for ya! You inspire me so much. Congrats on crushing that goal! 🙏🏻😁🤘🏻😎💪🏼🇺🇲

  156. Man it’s so sad that I love your videos so much. I wish you cared about Palestinians dying man, heartbreaking. Man I watched these every day one low point in my life. Don’t meet your hero’s I guess, wishing you the best Casey.

  157. Marrying a certain girl is a weak man’s dream, dreams should be bigger, you love a girl you like her you want her but not to be your dream, dreams should be bigger, harder and more important that this

  158. I’m literally crying at ihop eating my omelette and pancakes because this was so moving.

  159. You gotta be f kidding me! Man, you inspired me to run like 6-7 years ago. And I used to run like 5km every other day or something for couple of months. My goal was to run a marathon but I started to college, my life become a total mess and I couldn’t continue running for a long time. Instead, I lifted and got ripped and stuff but that marathon goal stuck in me. I used to watch your videos all the time I was really young at that time. My life was terrible for like 2 years, dealing with many problems right now, trying to work things out, working really hard to get somewhere.I just started to code, becoming more financially stable, working for a master degree and after 6 years, like 2 weeks ago I got back on running. And I am focused more than ever!. Running 10km every other day for 2 weeks now. My goal is to be able run a marathon under 4 hour. Yesterday, I hurt my back really bad while running, was feeling really down today and I saw your video!!! It was really inspirational and it hit me just in the right time.. Thanks for the inspiration Casey! and that sisyphus thing, that’s for LIFE man, it never ends!! haha! SO, KEEP RUNNING!!

  160. о мужик, это была невероятная история, от которой хочется плакать 👍

  161. In my opinion you won and achieve your goal when you reached 3:02 – accident, broken leg, and yet you achieved something abnormal for most human beings. Hitting below 3:00 made me soak in tears of happiness.

    It makes me want to achieve my goals I’ve abandoned in past few years…

  162. Congratulations mate, that’s awesome! Now, when are you going to cover the migrant issue in NY/NYC? You’ve been awfully quiet (here on YouTube), and it’d be great to see you make a video on this pressing topic… given your love and connection to NY and NYC.

  163. Casey , youre so inspiring.. the best youtube video ive ever watch and i cried. Thankyou Casey

  164. Man, I’ve been watching for almost 10 years now. It’s so hard overcoming fear of failure, it’s one of my biggest fears. I go back to your travel videos from 2016-2018 and get inspired every single time. I’m currently training to be a pilot and it’s pain staking shit. In fact, it’s currently 1:11am and I just got done studying and saw this video. Casey, you’re amazing.

  165. Incase you have not heard yet: THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST 😊 😊

    1 John 5:20
    20 We know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we know the real God. We are in the one who is real, his Son Jesus Christ. This Jesus Christ is the real God and eternal life.

    1 John 3:4
    4 Those who live sinful lives are disobeying God. Sin is disobedience.

    1 John 1:8
    8 If we say, “We aren’t sinful” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    Romans 6:23
    23 The payment for sin is death, but the gift that God freely gives is everlasting life found in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    2 Peter 3:9
    9 The Lord isn’t slow to do what he promised, as some people think. Rather, he is patient for your sake. He doesn’t want to destroy anyone but wants all people to have an opportunity to turn to him and change the way they think and act.

    1 John 1:9
    9 God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.

    John 3:16-18
    16 God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world. 18 Those who believe in him won’t be condemned. But those who don’t believe are already condemned because they don’t believe in God’s only Son.

    John 14:6
    6 Jesus answered him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one goes to the Father except through me.

    1 Corinthians 15:3-8
    3 I passed on to you the most important points of doctrine that I had received:
    Christ died to take away our sins as the Scriptures predicted.
    4 He was placed in a tomb.
    He was brought back to life on the third day as the Scriptures predicted.
    5 He appeared to Cephas.[a] Next he appeared to the twelve apostles. 6 Then he appeared to more than 500 believers at one time. (Most of these people are still living, but some have died.) 7 Next he appeared to James. Then he appeared to all the apostles. 8 Last of all, he also appeared to me.

    Romans 10:9-10
    9 If you declare that Jesus is Lord, and believe that God brought him back to life, you will be saved. 10 By believing you receive God’s approval, and by declaring your faith you are saved.

I love you and your work so so much! in Sanskrit language there is a saying, “जीवेत शरदः शतम् ।।” meaning, “May you live long long life” My friend, keep inspiring us!!!!

  167. Holy shit I love this video. I gotta get my shit together I’m tired of being a broke 50-year-old failure

  168. Hahahahaha I thought you waited 17 years to reveal you had Syphilis 🙂 that would have been a beautiful video

  169. did you guys noticed the girl running in front of him in one of the marathons was number 2577 and he accomplished his goal with the time 2:57? all this time life was there showing him what he was getting rewarded with.. the universe works in amazing ways. or it could of just been coincidence ill let you decide what to believe

  170. Best YTer that have ever lived on Earth. No one will catch your hard work and impact you made on society. Thank U for that Casey

  171. One of the best videos I’ve ever seen. Not the usual bullishit motivational video, it’s just a brilliant way of delivering a good story. Congrats Casey

  172. You’re fucking crazy…AND THAT’S WHAT DRIVES US!
    As long as air fills our lungs there is still time!
    😎✌🤘🤟

  173. 11:34 The girl in front of you in your first marathon has “2577” in her chest. Years later you achive that “2:57” goal. Its silly but a i love this coincidences.

  174. I FUCKING LOVE THIS!!! You give me hope and the desire to push through hardships. Thank you! ❤

  175. Did you spice up the story? It must be a really stupid doctor to say you will never run again just because of that nail. no doctor I know would say such a stupid thing. That fracture was not that bad not to run again. it’s still an achievement to run a fucking marathon, couldn’t do it with or without nail.

  176. Casey saying he felt stronger than ever at the age of 42, is inspiration for me that I haven’t failed in my life in my early 20s. Thankyou for making this video.

  177. We live in the time of one of the best vlog creators, his videos are an inspiration to many people. Salute you, sir Casey (We miss your daily vlogs 😅)

  178. But how does it feel now ? Like you accomplished something or lost something ?Fullfilled or empty or both ?And is there anything next ? Oh, congrats ! 😛

  179. Out of all your videos Casey. This one…this one is the most special. To one of the greatest story teller in YouTube, keep inspiring Casey. You are the best!

  180. This is what dreams are made of, and we should all strive to overcome our hurdles. Great video, Casey!

  181. How do you organize your files from all of those years so that it’s tolerable to put them together into a video??

  182. This is how the motivation should be its heartwarming how u stood all this time to achieve ur goal

  183. You’re TRULY INSPIRING!! Among all the YouTubers I’ve come across, you’re the only one I’ve consistently followed and eagerly kept up with. Every single video you create is absolute gold.

  184. Good lesson learned: Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail.
    Train differently. Fail some more. Don’t give up.
    Then finally…Success.
    Persistence gets its way. Perseverance until success. Regardless of how big or small the goal happens to be. If it is important to you, learn from your mistakes and keep it up. Relentlessly. BTW, @caseyneistat you are not old and weak when you are in your 40s. You are old and weak when you give up too easily. Thank you for sharing this great personal story of triumph.

  185. You’re the man, Casey. Unbelievably inspiring video – you’re truly one of the greats!

  186. This.. This right here is the reason why Casey will forever be one of the greatest humans I have encountered.

  187. BY FAR ONE OF CASEYS BEST STORIES HE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY TO CONTINUE INSPIRING ALL OF US TO NEVER GIVE UP!

  188. I run my first marathon today in Tallahassee, Florida. This is so powerful. Thank YOU Casey.

  189. That was so dope! This is the best movie I have watched all year. Congratulations, Casey! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

  190. Now that you’ve broken that mental barrier, do it on a flat course, I promise you’ll succeed. 🤜🤛
