Marathon Maniac #957
Holly who was that marathoner that thought the Pace Leader was going too slow and took off on her own and finished off a super-strong marathon with energy to burn?
Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
Live like you are dying not like you are afraid to die.

"Some are the strong, silent type. You can't put your finger on exactly what it is they bring to the table until you run without them and then you realize that their steadiness fills a hole that leaks energy in their absence." - Kristin Armstrong

From Romans 5:3-4:
"More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope."

I second what Spareribs said---be careful about the weight thing. I always feel like it's a razor thin balance at this point in marathon training.
