Mile 26: Bob V.
Clear eyes. Full heart. Can't lose.
I met Bob years ago, at a marathon pacing dinner. There's no one who better represents "tough as nails" than Bob. He's fought his own battle with the beast (the big "C") and came out victorious.
So when I finish the first marathon of 5, I'll make sure to remember. "Clear eyes. Full Heart. Can't Lose"
