Run 20 – Warrior or ordinary man?

I’m in Bristol today! Did you know the chocolate bar was invented here? Didn’t think so. In 1847 a dude by the name of Joseph Fry found a way to mix  cocoa powder, sugar and cocoa to manufacture a paste that could then be molded into a chocolate bar for eating. This magic happened in what is now the Odean Cinema in the fancy shopping district of Broadmead.

I was hardly up for a run when I finished up at 8pm but managed kick myself out for a loop of the inner city…and what a great city it seems to be. Still listening to E myth and today I bookmarked this snippet  where Michale references the below quote from Carlos Castaneda’s Teaching of Juan Don

“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.” 

Although relevant to every aspect of life it couldn’t be more real and simple when applied to a run. How do you see those last few miles in the marathon, that never ending hill, the blazing heat, the freezing cold? Challenge or curse? Warrior or ordinary man?

Until tomorrow, keep running toward better!

I listened to 65% of The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber
