Tuesday Inspiration: Staying Honest

When you have a goal that is as huge as the marathon – it will “keep you honest.”  It’s not like a smaller goal that you can announce and then put off or fake your way through.  Once you sign up, commit months to training, and take your first step on race day – you better have done your homework.  The beauty of this is that it goes against 99% of the national tendancies of our culture that favors gratification without effort or devotion.  But is that kind of achievement ever as satisfying?  Linda Hill once told me that she loved the quote “There is no glory in training, but there is no glory without training.  In no way is this more true than in running.  --- Holly Digiovine
