"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”

- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

100 Hours And Counting...

The 100 hour countdown to the Newport Marathon is on. Weather is looking like 45 degrees with a good chance of rain. So...pretty much what I've been running in the majority of the last few months. Tapering is boring. I post what I've been up to in the next day or so. For now though, I'm just trying to keep busy, pass the time, get some rest, pay extra special attention to my food and fluid intake and tell myself over and over again, "It's a marathon, not a sprint. Don't go out too fast."
