The view from my porch

FROM MARTY (thank you thank you thank you!)

I’m a distance runner.

I’ve been training to keep going, even when it’s hard.

When it hurts. When it sucks. When I don’t want to.

I LOOK PAST IT.

Relentless forward progress to the finish.

Call it what you want: stubbornness, endurance, determination, guts.

DEEP DOWN,

I DON’T KNOW HOW TO GIVE UP.

(…and it’s always worth it in the end)

Good luck to Fred “Doom” Dummar and Ivan Castro at the marathon des sables! Fred and Ivan, retired Army Special Forces officers, are past runners and always supporter of the Run for the Red Marathon. Ivan was blinded in action and Fred is his DEAR friend and guide! These two have a friendship, a bond, like few others. Picture attached (I hope!)

I did a quick look at the event list and there are close to 30 USA entries of the close to 1000 member field.

The event has begun…

FROM MARTY
Training is doing your homework. It’s not exciting. More often than not it’s tedious. There is certainly no glory in it. But you stick with it, over time, and incrementally through no specific session, your body changes. Your mind becomes calloused to effort. You stop thinking of running as difficult or interesting or magical. It just becomes what you do. It becomes a habit – Jeff Edmonds

Rod here just sayin’, my training is exciting! My training is GLORIOUS, every precious moment! My body and my mind may be old, but I still feel magic in every step! Training isn’t my habit, it is my mistress!

FROM MARSHA GRIER – Good Afternoon Previous Law Day Runners,

Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet. – Doris Brown Heritage

Nine weeks to the Pocono Marathon races. My advice for those running the half and the whole is to run hills and hills and MORE hills! After driving the course last Sunday all I could think of was to find Bill Carlton and kick him in the nuts!

The ability to run, one of the most precious blessings from the Good Lord! Just do it (safely) and enjoy it!
