"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Never, Never, Never Quit.

Hello taper

Decided to bag the ride yesterday hoping to get a decent last long run in today and it worked out perfect. Finally a good long run. Not great but much better than any earlier ones from the past few months.

Got in a strong 16. Probably won't go longer than 3000 yards swimming, 50 miles biking or 9 miles running in the last 16 days. My only goal between now and Nov 1st is to get to the starting line healthy, strong and rested.

It feels like I've been training for this thing for years rather than months. My only hope is my race reflects my training.
