A chronicle of my new challenge. To become a triathlete.

Just a quickie
You can never be sure. That's what makes the marathon both fearsome and fascinating. The deeper you go into the unknown, the more uncertain you become. But then you finish. And you wonder later, 'How did I do that?' This question compels you to keep making the journey from the usual to the magical.~Joe Henderson
Even when you have gone as far as you can, and everything hurts, and you are staring at the specter of self-doubt, you can find a bit more strength deep inside you, if you look closely enough. -Hal Higdon
Things I will be thinking of during my last and final long (22 mile) training run before the marathon. I have had friends, strangers, co-workers, and everyone in between ask me why I run. These two quotes above just begin to scratch the surface of why. I am not sure it is something I will every be able to fully express in words of my own. I am hoping for a great training run tomorrow as a preview to January 30th! Only time will tell.
