Then did my thing with breakfast/news/prep for day, and ran out the door to do my 4 miles.   Mike Egan’s wife Donna, is having some serious health issues so offered the run up for her.  It was the best 4 mile run I had since October 2013.  Took pic afterwards…anne

Here’s Map My Run link of morning run…

Training for a marathon, especially early training takes a lot of heart because it’s so far from the goal – delayed gratification.  I take it a day at a time.

When it comes to a marathon, there is no game playing, no pretending – the clock never lies.  Even though clock makes me angry sometimes (when I think I finished sooner…), I think that is essentially one of the biggest things I like about about the marathon – there are no short cuts, no manipulation, no game playing…This is it – the real thing!  It’s you against the clock.  If you do a good job it pays off.  If you don’t…it doesn’t.

Wouldn’t it be great if all everythingthing worked that way.  Let’s live as if it did.

Here’s your daily dose of inspiration.  Click on link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bz8ip2ptJQ.
