As soon as you mentioned a sub-4 pace, my face was like o_O. Honestly though, finishing a full marathon in sub-5 is pretty freaking awesome!

 

And your stories never cease to inspire - every time I read a post-race post of yours, I think to myself that I'd like to finish a marathon or half-Ironman at some point in my life. Not ready to commit to a race just yet, but someday the itch might turn into something more.

Loved reading this post - way to stick to your triathlon training and power through the event. The last picture of you is a beast. I felt a little dejected after spraining my ankle, but now I can't wait to properly rehab and start working towards something again - maybe an Olympic triathlon for me. :) Can't wait to read your post-marathon review! Keep up the ass-kicking and inspiring the rest of us to kick ass. :)

Loved the apple pie and ice cream sandwich picture. I used FirstTimeTriathlon iPhone app and thought it useful for its workout schedules. It might be useful to practice your transitions at least once and drive through the bike course to get a feel for how long it is. Other than that, have fun with it and know that you're kicking ass!

I discovered this year that fear is truly the mind killer - it can paralyze you from making the bold decisions you should make in living your life. In my first year of law school, I was terribly afraid of getting bad grades, not finding a job for the summer, and ultimately living a life of mediocrity. And what I realize now is that not only were my fears somewhat exaggerated, but that even if the worst case scenario did happen, that shouldn't prevent me from making the best decision I can make today. Thus, in moving forward, I am taking steps to address some health issues (even if I need to take the off beaten path) and remind myself that the reason why I am in school is to gain skills as an entrepreneur - not to become a practicing lawyer. Instead of pursuing legal scholarship generally, I'm really focusing on improving skills so that I can be an effective cofounder by the time I graduate - and to stop being afraid of how I don't fit traditional stereotypes.

Anyway, thanks Jason for doing this interview. I really enjoyed it.

P.S. Found it hard to comment through Twitter app, FYI.
