Runner.com – Information and Inspiration for the Runner

Reading this made me feel all warm and fuzzy, but it also reminded me of another perspective about the time and energy spent running.When I was training for my first marathon in 2007, I spent a few minutes at dinner one night telling my friends all about the epic (to me) journey of my first 20-miler. They “oohed” and “aahed” and “wowed” on cue, until Steve noted the following: “You know what I could have done in four hours? Two movies.” (Sigh.)

Enjoy your weekend, no matter how you decide to spend your energy!
