In response to Hopkinton's list of attributes of a marathon runner, I think you forgot outside influences. The discipline and rigor that training takes has an adverse affect on external entities. Since I started this training I have had to make some significant life style changes, some good some not so good. I have had to cancel trips and vacations, passed up social engagements with friends and co-workers, missed many family get togethers and meals. This does not go over well at home or at work. So, regardless of how committed Iam there are external forces that can influence my ability to continue this regimen. I, like JoeZ, feel I've committed to this goal, and will do whatever it takes to get there. Whether I will continue as a "marathoner" I honeslty don't know. I'll let you know some time in November.
