Remember the Titans was on TV today. Great movie with some great quotes. This one in particular stuck out today.

"I run 6 plays, split veer. It's like novacaine. Just give it time, always works." -Coach Boone

Good advice. I could probably rotate 6 of my favorite training sessions to get into some of the best shape of my life too.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!”

Motivating for some personality types (e.g. meatheads like myself)... but I can also see where it's very demotivating to others. It works on me, but I try not to use it as a coach.

You're not old until you start using age as an excuse.

Don't know where I got that. I tossed it out in the checkout line in a grocery store in Moab. Everybody stopped, and I worried I'd offended someone. Then, everybody nodded, "I like that." Whew.
