This was my first visit to the Catalyst. One of F3Omaha’s premier running AO’s. Top notch MumbleChatter. From the minute I stepped out of my car I found this to be true. We pre-ran. At 5:15 I welcomed the Pac and said the things: the mission, five core principles, not a professional. No new guys. A handful of first timers at the Catalyst thought! Instructions were given for our out and back run. Turn at the cones. Follow the brick road and turn around and head back at 5:40. We set our watches to Stun and just like that we were off. A cool north breeze kept us moving. Nothing we couldn’t handle though.
The Man in the Glass
By Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr.
When you get what you want in your struggle for self and the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.
For it isn’t your father, your mother, or wife
Whose judgement upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life is the one staring back from the glass.
He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest. For he’s with you – clear to the end.
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test if the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years and get pats on the back as you pass.
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
