An excerpt from From Tommy Rivers Puzey (Tommy Rivs') blog: as he observes James from the field:

There was a unity and a fire that radiated through the crowd. It was as if every stride was a message – a collective action that symbolized a shared internal conviction. It was the same conviction that moved each of them... to wake up this morning and accompany the Iron Cowboy. Each had overcome their discomfort, and silenced the voices inside that encouraged retreat.

An excerpt from my Day 42 blog:

No commentary today other than you'll see two swim files...

I have been put to shame. In my defense, endurance coaches are not known for their philosophy. I can talk physiology, physics, maybe even psychology. But poetry? I'd have to charge extra for that.
