  1. As a marathon runner who absolutely hated running every step of every race I ran I kept a running battle in my brain between the part of me that screamed, “You idiot, why are you killing yourself? Just stop, nobody cares if you finish!” and my better angels who kept telling me,”This is about who you are, a winner or a loser, a finisher or a quitter, it is simply up to you to be who you chose to be.” I always finished even though there were a couple of times the med teams ran up to catch me when I fell over the finish line. Stupid hobby, indeed, but it taught me I was way tougher than I had ever imagined and showed me how hundreds of miles of training were required just to finish the last five miles of each race. That has translated into much success at business and in life.

    1. Why would you do that to yourself…I mean, wow! You used to run marathons? I give credit to people who do, but I’m not a fan of running extremely long distances. I remember running one year of high-school cross-country. I completed the very first two-mile race in 13 minutes and 15 seconds. I had never before run such a distance and my body let me know it wasn’t happy… Apparently there were dozens of others whose bodies told them the same things so we had to line up to use the one bathroom. It was awful.

      I still run one or two times a week for no more than 3.1 to 3.5 miles. I do this because it’s a different type of work-out than just squatting and deadlifting and makes me feel good.

      It’s easy to start something. Finishing is difficult (but so crucial) and is something I still struggle with.
