“Insanity is repeating the same mistakes over and over again expecting different results.”  – Albert Einstein

Or, those that don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

Whether it is drawing up plans for the new chicken coop, composing a training cycle for an athlete, or daring to be a force of change for the better.  Learning what has worked in the past, what has failed, these lessons should guide, and Do guide, me.

Another way to look at it.  Just because it is the easiest route, doesn’t mean you should take it.  I’ve got a bee line out to the barn, straight shot to and from doors.  And sometimes Jed chooses to adorn exactly my path with some of his massive lawn sausages.  It only took one step into those piles.  I learned not to step in it again.  And in fact choose a different route all together.

Good luck to our masters mates running Des Moines.  David Frost will squeeze it in between redeyes, logging many of thousands at 6 miles a minute for much of  the cycle.  Matt, his upside a study in potential.

And no matter where your laces show  up, make it mean something!
