-smooth and strong
-what are you made of?

these are my marathon slogans this year that i will be uttering underneath my breath when i'm feeling gassed. smooth and strong, smooth and strong-- pretty self explanatory there.

what are you made of? during a race, this is your chance to prove it to yourself and to everybody else.

this is where you find out what you're made of.
you push beyond your comfort zones, you push yourself more than you thought physically possible.
this really is where you find out what you're made of.

all of the reasons you pushed yourself during training, all of the times you got out the door and put in the miles when you weren't feeling 100%, all of the friday nights when you went to bed at 9pm, all of the times in your life when someone has doubted your abilities, they all come to a head during those tough miles during the race.

the last 1/4 of your race is where you really find out what you are all about. go ahead, push yourself, make it uncomfortable...what are you made of?

i can't wait to get out there and run that marathon. its going to be awesome.

    Can't wait to cheer you on. Keep thinking about the T Tunnel -- that'll get you cruising toward the finish!!

    You're awesome. Keep it up.
