Lawrence of Arabia

Lawrence persevered in the desert and so do I. In the movie he was putting a match out with his dry thumb and finger. Another British officer tried it but complained about the pain. Lawrence said, "The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts." *

And that's what I kept reminding myself as my sore legs and hips bothered me on tonights 5.35 mile run. "I don't mind if it hurts." I did take a potty break at the 2.3 mile mark. That's why you see my speedy self take off on the graph.
34.37 miles in the past 7 days. 91 miles so far in December, it's the #1 month this year. So do you think I can get to 100?
*Props to Reid for looking up the answer.

Hey Pat! If you want to get to 100, just remember the Tortoise and the Hare. Sticking my head back in my shell.....
