from one runner to another pass it on

It’s been Cookin’ for a while Now I can almost Smell Marathon Morning

Just 8 days left before the morning air hits me like the fresh smells from a neighborhood bakery. The excitement, the chills, the atmosphere. There really isn’t anything like marathon morning. From the documentary film The Spirit of the Marathon when the older runner steps outside and says, “This is good.” There is a feeling that only runners experience on a day like that. If you haven’t been there, it is like trying to explain the experience of fatherhood to a 24-year-old bachelor, it just doesn’t translate until you get there yourself.

If you are in your running infancy, you want to work to get this point where the feeling of marathon morning can take you over and transcend you. You will know what I am talking about someday. You’re welcome.
