I keep thinking "what kind of nut goes out and runs for 3 hours non-stop?"
Yup. And I was looking back at my log from when I first joined RA almost a year ago and chuckling at my times. I have easily cut 2 minutes off of my average pace since then. If only I could see that kind of progress in the next year, but I think cutting one minute off in that time would be a more reasonable and attainable goal.
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
My dogs are fast, not me
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
You rock, Kirsten! You've come so far in the past year. I'm totally inspired.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
