Fdip143: The 2008 Fall Marathon Guide

Planning your Fall Marathon is all about setting a goal, with many months ahead of you within which to prepare.  What marathoners learn as we engage in this preparation is that the joy, passion and discovery takes place during our training: in many ways the marathon itself is merely a celebration of what we have been able to achieve through the hours and miles that we’ve spent in training to get us to that starting line.

Now is the time to pick our races, now is the time to make our commitments, now is the moment to promise to ourselves and others that we will train well and hard, and complete a 26.2 mile course with dedication, determination, strength and honor…and these are the races that you and I will run.

Fdip142: Dr. George Sheehan - Personal Best

Today, I'm going to tell you a little bit about a book written by Dr. George Sheehan titled “Personal Best: The foremost philosopher of fitness shares techniques and tactics for success and self liberation, published in 1989 by Rodale Press.  It’s a book of 37 chapters, each one an essay and study into an physical of cerebral aspect of running. 

For anyone looking to read a sample of the right brain/left brain writings of Dr. Sheehan, this book gives you a good sense of his style.  He challenges us to think about our lives, our running, and our purpose within each page.  George Sheehan understood that running was more than just an activity; it is an expression of life and love.
