And Getting Up and Doing It Again

Paul Bowers writes about running the Charleston (SC) Half Marathon in an article in the online Charleston City Paper of 11 January 2012. The article is titled "Trying to avoid rookie mistakes at the Charleston Half Marathon; Run Your Own Race" and begins with an interesting note:
Often when people ask about my long-distance running habit, I am reminded of the first time I met someone who had hiked the entire Appalachian Trail. I asked him how he did it, and he shrugged.

"There wasn't much to it, really," he said. "It was basically just walking, sleeping, and eating for five months."

His nonchalant answer might have been false modesty, but a part of me took him at his word.
Well, yeah, there you go.
