claims Scott Jurek’s has a different pain scale from the rest of us. And…
“Researchers have studied the nutritional needs and mental toughness of ultrarunners and found that they have a strong psyche that’s balanced by euphoria. For them, euphoria trumps pain.

I don’t think I’m that tough, but maybe my tiny black heart needs the euphoria from running?
Yes. That must be it.
Brady Bands Giveaway
You guys know I am a visor girl all the way. I wear my visor at all times – even in the shower. No shame in my game.
But, a rep from Brady Bands contacted me to do a giveaway and I couldn’t turn it down. The company was created to support CureSearch in honor of the founder’s son Brayden. Tragically, Brayden died of brain cancer a year ago.
Brady Bands donate 10% of each sale to CureSearch.
We are passionate about helping to find a cure for childhood cancer, the number one killer of children under 16 in the U.S.. At least 10% of every sale will be donated to childhood cancer research.
