Lenten Reflections

I stumbled upon a treasure trove of quotes at http://www.tentmaker.org/Quotes/lifewisdomquotes.htm
I'll try to post a few here and there during this Lenten season.

In this life
Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is
fighting some kind of battle.

derivation of this quote:
Author James M. Barrie, of Peter Pan fame, said “Be kinder than necessary.” But his advice stops there. Plato is quoted as saying “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”


One time I was running two abreast along a narrow path and an older lady (50s?) approaching from the other direction stuck out her elbow and hit me in the rib cage, despite my attempt to make room as she passed. Unfortunately I'm too quick to anger so I got upset. After a while I was able to see that she was fighting her battle with the end of a long run. We've all been there -- everything stinks and you just want it to be over. And ultimately I was ok being the target for some of her frustration, because I probably was taking more than my fair share of the path.

My training is going well right now. I ran a 24M long run yesterday (an easy 7:52 pace) and my normal 6M lunch time run today without any residual effect.

I won't attempt to catch up from the last time I posted a blog, but I will say that right now I'm training for the Oklahoma City Marathon on May 1, 2011. If all goes well I'll post a Boston qualifying time in order to run Boston in 2012. I'm also training for the NYC 2011 marathon. If (big "if") the next three marathons go according to plan (OKC, NYC, Boston) then it's likely that I'll hang up my marathon shoes. Only time will tell.

dustry is dependent on color which as a whole is a medium that should be available for all to paint with as tastes, idiosyncrasies and moods change. The question is much narrower than whether fashion designers in general should be allowed to use any color on any product, but whether Louboutin's competitors need to use red soles to compete effectively.Tiffany's main criticism is that the court shou
