"Mile 26 to the marathoner is confession. Mile 26 is where all the sins you committed in training are forgiven, for if you get to mile 26, you've done enough. Mile 26 is where the pain you've been fighting all day - pain that might have had you on the ropes, tempting you to just stop and quit - surrenders. Again. It leaves you - every ache, every pain, every thought you had that you weren't good enough or strong enough is banished. Mile 26 is where you know it was worth it."
