From Meb K's twitter last night: In the first half of a marathon, don't be stupid. In the second half, don't be a wimp.

Wow! That is something to remember, especially since I tend to wimp out when the going gets tough in a marathon (see the mental toughness thread....).

Thanks for sharing!!

I copied that quote into my stickies so I could save it and came across this quote I had saved, from an unknown source:

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells 'CAN'T", but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper 'can'. And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are." -unknown
