It's what we do

A lot of us are preparing for yet another round in our endless battle with the road.  Whether it's a 5K, a half marathon a full marathon or all of the above at once, we challenge the distance to test our selves.  Some of us even throw a swim and a bike race in the mix and make it a Triathlon.  We need this, it's what we do.  It's our passion and our desire, for happiness we must know that our minds and bodies are trained to take on those challenges.

It's a never ending passion, our plan is to "Go the distance", for as long as we are blessed to live.  We train when we can, we rest when it's earned and we heal when it's necessary.  Those periods when we can't train and compete make us want it even more.  There is such a sense of joy when we can once again train after a forced layoff.

It's what we do and it's a good thing.  It keeps us healthy and humble, yet it makes us feel like we have super powers as well.  When we are firing on all cylinders we are a force of nature and all is right with our world.  There are no negative thoughts when we are performing at our peak, we are as we should be, at peace.

Train smart, eat healthy and rest well, we have a life to live, a life in the fast lane, not on the side watching life go by.  It's what we do, our destiny and our mission, being a positive example.
