Three Things Thursday

Another installment of Three Things Thursday.  It's hard to come up with three things...  
They can be as thought provoking as they are annoying.

This Runner’s World quote fanned a thought that sparked last night when I put together my training plan for my next Ultra.


I only remember some of the pain, mostly I remember the joy of accomplishment. 


 I was vowing to not run a lot this summer.  Then I put together this plan (it starts June 6th):

Well shit, that’s all summer and some long runs, when will I bike?  Maybe a fall Ultra isn’t where it’s at?



Beth, realizing "It's better to cross the line and suffer the consequences than to just stare at the line for the rest of your life."


  1. I like this post! I agree with all 3 precepts (except for biking). Don't hate on the running so much during that training plan and monster long runs. What better way to spend the summer?

    1. I promise I won't hate on the monster long runs (or at least articulate my hatred), because there is an ultimate goal it will be ok. A better way to spend the summer would include biking or kayaking on brewery tours, a pipe dream.... plus there is always beer in the shower and iced armpit towels at the end of a long summer run, right?

  2. I say go for it! I however am still a one and done on the marathon... the half just suits me better, and the distance for training works better for me. Although in the back of my head I am still considering another marathon in the future. I love all the quotes.
