Are you a pansy . . .
. . . or are you obsessive?
What IS the magic number?
" . . . there seems to be an ideal distance to run--below which makes you a pansy, above which makes you an obsessive. what is that magic number?" --Marck Parent in "My Sweaty Little Secret" in Feb issue of Runners World.
Love this quote! And, though I don't think anyone is ever a "pansy" for getting out there to run, no matter the distance, I definitely agree there is a crossover, at some point, into obsessive. I just don't know where/when that is. Do you? For me, that "magic number" seems to increase with each new race goal/distance I achieve . . .
