Late Week Motivation

Wow, its been a whole week since I posted. Its semester turn around time here at school, so I've been crazy busy.
On the running front, training going well. I completed 41 miles in week 4 and 43 miles in week 5, and I ran a 8K fun run last weekend after running a 22 miler the day before. I hope to post details later in the week, in a more detailed post.

In the meantime, I found the most amazing video that I think is proof that it is only our minds that set limits for us.



Have a wonderful Friday! Thanks for reading.

Thanks for sharing this video. I had heard the story before but it was even more powerful to see the actual game. The support from the crowd is so incredible.

Looking forward to hearing about your running!

I really want to get out for a run soon (perhaps one when you are not running 22 :)

Your mileage is really getting up there-- keep up the great work! (It's no coincidence that my word verification word is "duper" as in "super-duper!")
