What is Strong?

"What is strong?"

The answer is so varied.  What do you think is strong?

"Is it muscle?"

I'm not going to pontificate and try and answer it.

"....Or something more?"

I know that there is always more, more that you can give, 
more that you can do.  A well of determination to dip into.  
I'm trying to keep mine.  I start training for a century ride 
(100 miles) on Monday.  We have eight weeks of training 
before we rock out this ride.

"Is it measured in miles or milliseconds?"

It's going to take us 6 hours, at least, that's what we expect.
I'm nervous, incredibly so.
128.7499 miles.  It seems so insurmountable.
Lansing to Big Rapids.

"Is it your best time or your worst day?"

But training builds you up slowly, which is exactly what I need.
One turn of the cranks at a time.

".....Maybe strong is just what you have left when you've used up all your weak."

Great commercial by Saucony, a shoe company based in the US and Canada. It is one of the most motivational commercials I have ever seen. I saw it this weekend for the first time while watching the Tour de France. Excellent commercial.
