“The difference between a jogger and a runner is an entry blank.”
My personal running (workout) mantras:
Finish hard, finish strong.
Leave it all out there.
My goal for tomorrow: PR in my half-marathon (okay, okay, it’s my first, so it’s more like…set a competitive PR that will take work to hit next time around)
My plan for tomorrow:
Where Barney says marathon, think “half-marathon.”
My rewards-plan for tomorrow: get a bike (soon), find more races for my 2011, create a February training schedule and make simple and sweet No Excuses Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies!
“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.”
