“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.
It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.” -Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone."

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.” -Stephen King

|Actress outside the Haunted Mansion in Walt Disney World during MNSSHP|
It is that time of year again! Today marks the first day of the MNSSHP 2012. For those of you who have not yet attended at party at the Magic Kingdom let me just say that it is the best way to spend Halloween if you like Disney at all. It is an after hours thing that costs an additional price (separate ticket from admission). People and characters dress up for Halloween and trick or treat. There is also a special "Boo to You" Halloween parade, Happy HalloWishes fireworks, special lighting and decorations just for the event. It is a fun time for all and tickets for a lot of the party dates are still available. If you want to purchase tickets head on over to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party website.

If you have not yet seen the 27 minute show I highly recommend seeing it on your next trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Hollywood Hills Amphitheatre is located on Sunset Boulevard next to the Hollywood Tower of Terror.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I admired the honesty about the journey that running all takes us on. However this book, short already, could have been much shorter. There are many chapters that are simple repeats of thoughts previously expressed. While the book is about running and training for races it is also about writing. Normally I am not a fan of a book that advertises itself as one thing but then turns into a discussion on a whole other topic. This time it worked. The correlation between writing fiction and running marathons works and in fact some of my favorite parts of the book are the sections about writing.
His views on races and running in general are not really my own. He thinks that walking at all in a race is bad thing, I am of the school that you do what you can to finish and there is no shame in walking if need be. Also I have participated in some very large races at Walt Disney World and have never experienced the aggression from other runners that he has. Perhaps it is because I have never been in the elite corrals. If I showed up and people were "running me over" I would not do that race again.
Overall this is a good read. I recommend listening to it as an audio book it is much more entertaining than just sitting down to read it.
