The 10th Leper and Resting HR
I like the quote attributed to Steve Prefontaine: To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the Gift. This idea fits well within today's readings. You need to know you have received a gift before you can be thankful for it. Running is my gift! And I am very thankful now, so many years from my birth. And I have returned to the place where the man healed me and he is not there and I cannot thank him! ... but perhaps the way to say thank you is to give nothing less than my best.
here. (BTW, this is called drift in GPS terms, and if you use a differential base station - or another stationary receiver - you can get rid of this drift. Cruise missiles and military planes are spot on though.)
So my resting HR is: 52. What's yours after 15 mins of laying quietly?
I was awarded a Versatile Blogger award from Jill, plus I have both Prefontaine and Without Limits rented. So I hope I can sneak these two movies in tomorrow and write up the award as well.
There are mighty deeds happening this weekend, triathlons, marathons, other races and I am RESTING! I can't wait for all the great race reports!
