You forget what it felt like.
The human body is amazing. It forgets pain. Try to remember exactly what something painful felt like. You can’t. You can remember that something hurt, but you cannot remember the exact pain. That explains how women agree to give birth again. They forget exactly how it felt. While no where near as painful as giving birth (or so I’ve heard), running a marathon is painful. Still, I keep doing it. I (Tim) signed up for the 2006 Twin Cities Marathon. I forgot about the pain and just remembered the good parts of my last four marathons. This time I roped Eric Unger in to be my training partner. It should be fun, or at the very least, interesting.
