My hidden athletic abilities

From Matthew Henry's commentary on Hebrews 12:1-3

"Every weight, that is, all inordinate affection and concern for the body, and the present life and world. Inordinate care for the present life, or fondness for it, is a dead weight upon the soul, that pulls it down when it should ascend upwards, and pulls it back when it should press forward; it makes duty and difficulties harder and heavier than they would be."

I know this might surprise you, but I am a world-champion weight lifter.
