I was watching “Monk” tonight and one of the characters paraphrased this quote – Being brave is being afraid but doing it anyway.  Of course, I love the way John Wayne says it better.  This marathon frightens me.  The training has frightened me, as I’ve expressed in a couple of my videos.  I was really afraid of that first long distance run, but I did it anyway.

There are always going to be scary things between you and what you want – you just can’t let that stop you.
