I'm not sure where I first read this-it might have been one of those odd English translations from a Chinese saying- but I liked it and I find that I often keep reminders of an end goal with me in the process of getting there. This image was the postcard, that first got me to thinking about running the LA Marathon. I used it as a bookmark in running books I have read this year. Today I have 3 miles and 6x100s. Unfortunately, my POLAR heart rate monitor that has been with me for the last 5 years decided to be done now. I got it two batteries, but have concluded, the batteries aren't the problem. So I am off to finding a new HR monitor...boo.
