""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)
It doesn't offend me.
I remember a buddy of mine showing me a brochure about traveling in Grizzly Bear country out west. If a grizzly bear charges you don't run. You should stand your ground because he might just be trying to scare you. Running only encourages him to think you might be a tasty morsel.
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
Coincidently (very funny story by the way) - I was doing some running research online yesterday and I came across some information that made me stop and exclaim 'WTF - why would any runner need that!'
I obviously hadn't factored in you.
