“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” - Aristotle

Hoping the above link scores you a photo of something I proudly wore during my first visit there in the 70s.
Explain the back story here, please. I see the photo, but I don't know the story behind it.Delete
It was a tourism promotional campaign for people to visit the city. I wasn't there as a tourist, just visiting a few friends. Fell in love with Boston (and a few pubs there) and wore the button for weeks after. After the marathon, you'll know Boston better than most people! Sending good energy and wishes your way as the days count down.Delete
I lived in Maine for many years, so I know Boston a bit, though running through a city is always the best way to get to know it. I look for ward to getting to know Boston a bit more.Delete
I'd never thought about the time factor during taper weeks. I've learned a lot reading your blog, and am really impressed that you've pushed through so much this year while you've trained for Boston. I'm just returning from injury after two months off the road. Brutal. Here's to having many positive distractions between now and Boston!ReplyDelete
Right now it's mostly the unpleasant distractions that seem to demand my attention - like all the work I've allowed to slide over the past weeks. Gotta get those resolved first, then perhaps I can move on to better things.Delete
Oh yes! So hard to not get caught up in the Boston hype! But it's the mecca for runners!!! I'll be thinking of you as I suffer through taper as well. Boston, here we come!ReplyDelete
What wave/bib number are you? I'm sure you're way ahead of me but perhaps we can find each other during that long wait in the athlete's village ;) I'm wave 3 - yea, last! coral 2. bib #19661.Delete
I'm in wave 2. #13502. Yes, we should find each other since we will have plenty of time!Delete
Let's be in touch! Are we fb friends? I never know given people's "blog names" ;) Can't keep everyone straight. BTW, I run the Cottontail trail several times a week. How did you get from the Rez to the CT Trail? Just curious if you know of a secret way ;) (this of course should be a comment left on your blog!)Delete
