We have a diverse group of runners ranging from early 20's to mid 60's who continually challenge themselves and have overcome a lot of obstacles not only in running, but in life.... I found this quote from Lance Armstrong and I think it applies to a lot of folks in our club, "Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever"
