Failure hurts

As I work my way slowly into the mindset required to train, to suffer, to thrive, to accept, to embrace and to enjoy the time and effort required to train for the Marathon des Sables, I have been browsing the web looking for advice and inspiration.
This first entry is pretty powerful, thought-provoking stuff. A brave man who dedicated a decade of his life to try to qualify for the Olympic Games. A man who failed and was brave enough and honest enough to accept that his dream was over and that he had failed. Good reading.
