Know your pace for marathoners is equivalent to the maxim about know thyself – it is easier said than done. To realize the reward, paying attention and working diligently towards the end goal have no substitutes. My marathon training is the same.
Often for non-marathoners, the whole event seems a myth. Why would anyone put themselves through such rigor or, more bluntly, torture? My reply is to each his own. As in the know thyself, you reap what you sow.
We all reach the same destination in this journey of life. The questions of When will we get there? Will our dignity be intact? Have we done enough to protect our privacy versus the country’s security? are points to ponder along the way.
Have a nice week.
