What was the secret? They wanted to know, in a thousand different ways they wanted to know THE SECRET. And not one of them was prepared, truly prepared to believe that it had not so much to do with chemicals and zippy mental tricks as with that most unprofound and sometimes heart rending process of removing, molecule by molecule, the very tough rubber that comprised the bottom of his running shoes. - John L.

  1. I'm planning to run the full Marathon for the Cleveland Marathon. I ran the Chicago Marathon last year ( my first ), and it didn't go according to plan. I need to redeem myself this year.

  2. Why not?! One entry into the giveaway for the half marathon please!
