5-481 Marine Corps Marathon


Hello my endurance athletic old friends. 

Welcome to episode 5-481.

How are we on this fine fall day? Up here in New England we have set the clocks back and it is now officially dark at 4:30ish, which makes me want to stab myself in the eye with an olive fork… Is there such a thing as an olive fork? 

We like to tell ourselves up, with puritanical zeal, and righteous fury, that all this lack of sunlight and crappy weather makes us harder and more able to transverse this fickle world filled with chaos. 

We say things like, “I was doing hill repeats in the freezing rain,” – wearing that suffering like holy stigmata. 

But, what if it’s all a lie? What if all the adversity just makes us grumpy and hard to live with?

I don’t know – but I do know the best policy is to take it one day at a time, do what you can and embrace what the universe brings you because time is short!
