Quotes and thoughts and other things.
The man next to me I'm chatting with is Michael Lemberger he worked hard the last three years for this race. This day all the hard work paid off, Michael took 6th place amongst a very experienced group.
“You can get sympathy or you can get better but you can’t get both. You can be in your comfort zone or you can have growth, but you can’t have both. You can be interested or you can be sold-out-committed, but you can’t entertain both. You can have excuses or have results, but you can’t do both. Choose the path that develops your visceral fortitude.”
- Mario Cortes
My daughter, Melissa, posted the above quote on FaceBook. She has started the long road of training to be a long distance runner, a marathoner. This spring is her first marathon. It becomes a lifestyle, a journey, like us long distance bicyclers, a way of life.
