OK, So Here's The Deal...

Lactic Acid

Lance Armstrong has an unusual deficiency of lactic acid creation in his freakish body.

I, on the other hand, am not so lucky. In fact, I think I make up for the production he lacks.

But I finished the 30th Annual Marine Corps Marathon and my time was ~4:48. Not my best, not my worst, and not my last.

I want to thank all of you that gave me th support I needed to finish my 14th marathon; the top of the list being my wonderful wife and kids.

I'll write more later when it doesn't hurt to exist.

    Cathy,

    Thank you very much. Glory might be forever and pain temporary but right now, the pain is pretty much taking center stage.

    jdub,

    You are right, Mr. President.

    And may I remind you of my tagline I've used for the last few years in all my personal email:

    "And of course you can't become
    if you only say what you would have done..."

    Laura,

    You forgot "whine, bitch, cramp, beshat the bed, wimper, sweat, shiver, palpatate, shake, cry, howl," and of course, "rectal bleed."

    Marathonin's FUN!

    Chris,

    No one was:

    1. Shooting at me
    2. Driving a car bomb near me
    3. Sniping me
    4. Cutting my head off
    5. Hijackling my plane
    6. Firing arty shells at me or
    7. Ambushing me

    All I did was cross two lines.

    Heroes come in many flavors and I'm sure most of them would trade places with me in a heartbeat. Taking a 26.2 mile jaunt beats the hell out of walking a beat or a patrol any day.

    It's all about perspective and spending a day running in the sun with 29,999 others in Virginia kind of pales in comparison.

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four
    e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from
    that service? Thanks!

    An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There's no doubt that that you ought to publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people do not speak about such issues. To the next! Cheers!!
