Share your Impossible True Story for 10 chances to win a $100 Visa Gift Card!

Based on the remarkable true story, “Secretariat” chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner.  Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge.  Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

To celebrate the release of the movie, these 10 bloggers are sharing their Impossible True Stories. Check out their posts for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card on each blog!

"Well, if there’s one thing that’s consistent about me, it’s that I make a habit of beating my head against impossible obstacles.  I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember.  I’ll do things my way, thankyouverymuch, and you can either help or get out of the way." Click to read Mama Says

"I hope to inspire those who have had to endure tragedy and remind them that faith, love, charity, and time can heal even the deepest wounds." Click to read 11th Heaven's Homemaking Haven

"Josh taught me that with a little planning and a lot of perseverance (and sweat), anyone can become a runner -- even tackling distances that i never dreamed of! it turned out that running is a sport that fits my previously mentioned OCD-ish tendencies like a glove: training plans ignite a fire within me, and yet each run is a relaxing trip away from it all." Click to read The SHUbox

"When I was in college, I had friends studying to be midwives and doulas, friends who couldn’t wait to have 4 or 5 kids of their own, friends who were already having babies. Not me. No, I was pretty ambivalent about the thought of being a mother. I figured if it happened, that’d be ok, but if not? That’d be ok, too. Hah." Click to read Sprog Blogger

"Let me give you a bit of my back story. Neither of my parents went to college. In fact, no one in my family had ever gone to college. College wasn’t even on my radar, because I’d been taught that only kids with lots of family money could afford college. I had no idea grants, scholarships or student loans existed."

"In 1995 I wrote a novel about Marie-Antoinette and called it Trianon. I had been fascinated by Marie-Antoinette since the age of nine. By the time I was a grad student I had visited Versailles twice, but it was not until I saw a picture of Petit Trianon in Smithsonian Magazine that I felt inspired to write something about the Queen."

"Our two options were to retreat or push ahead, and we pushed ahead. It's amazing to see them now in kindergarten and know how close the world came to not having them here at all."  Click to read Stirrup Queens

"I stood on the dock with my oldest son while he shot shaving cream around my ankles, to make it easy for my feet to slip into the boots of the ski. I leaned on him for the strength to push my feet into the boot, and once my foot was secure, I cried. My legs felt as if they were in traction — I could not walk on dry land in these things, and I felt unnaturally trapped." Click to readSusieJ

"I worked harder to not ever have to know that reality. I struggled to balance three jobs in high school. I worked full-time while carrying a maximum course load all through college. I took advantage of every opportunity to make a buck or two that came my way." Click to readThe Burgh Baby

"I graduated from college with 20 or so other Broadcast News majors, and all of us were certain we were going to be the next Tom Brokaw or Barbara Walters. Our professor wasn't so sure." Click to read Suburban Turmoil
