Fdip184: The 113th Boston Marathon

In this episode I will be completely honest and open up a little to tell you some things I’ve not previously revealed about me, and will run the 113th Boston Marathon with you.  A marathon is a very open, public and sincere physical event that puts you out there: for better or worse, revealing all of your weaknesses, as well as physical and mental pressure points.  A marathon forces you to face yourself in a very public and very introspective way.

I wasn’t supposed to run this race, and when I was a child the kids on the playground who once laughed at me when I dropped the ball said that I could never do such a thing.  But today, I’m running a marathon…an event that is as much an analogy for life as anything you could cover in 26.2 miles.  It correlates perfectly mile after mile for every period of your life, from cradle to grave: and it gives you the opportunity to do something special, amazing, inspirational and impressive.
