    Just added . . .

    a ton of upbeat, fast paced music to my Zune to keep me motivated and pumping hard when I'm running.

    marathon

    you love challenges, so I am confident you'll do a great job with this one! What is your typical longest run at this point?

    Is getting ready for some insanity . . .

    I've been asked, by a very good friend, to run a marathon. It's a short one, 10 or 15 miles, I don't remember, but now I have to train like a mad women to be in shape for it. The run is in April, and I believe it's for Leukemia. I'm excited, this will be the first marathon I run, and I can't wait to see if I have the patience to train for it, and the drive and motivation to actually complete the race.

    I'm honored

    by your kind message. I think you're right, though--we're both in this out of love and believe in going for it. I really admire your incredible stamina and dedication. I consider you a very, very good influence! While in the gym, I am always acutely aware that nobody else I see is doing what I'm doing--namely, moving rapidly from set to set, walking from one side of the gym to the other to use different pieces of equipment, staying in motion to keep my heart rate and energy up. I just crank up my iPod and maintain focus in my own little world. I find it sort of depressing to see how many people are just flopped out on the equipment, resting, with zero arousal. I don't know how they manage to make their muscle fibers contract when it's time to do a set. Oh, and as an aside: I really do think people had a different sense of gym etiquette 25 years ago. It was standard practice for people to ask whether they could "work in" with someone on a particular piece of equipment so that nobody was hogging anything for 10 minutes at a time. I hope you're having a great night! I'm enjoying a delicious post-workout upper-body pump.

    hope you

    get a good rest. I like your philosophy. I love lifting weights for their own sake, but when it comes to cultivating other forms of fitness, I'd much rather be outside, rowing or riding my bike.
