Resting is part of training. I've confirmed what I sort of already knew: I'm not built for running streaks. I'm built for hard workouts three to five days a week with lots of cross training, physical therapy and foam rolling. But I've also confirmed that I'm stubborn with myself.

At the top of my personal fascinations is the ongoing search for evidence of the human potential. I seek to know what our limits are and what stretches and contracts them. A perpetual review is how long we might live. But more important are the elements that affect this potential.
