That Which Does Not Kill Me Makes Me Stranger...... An interview with the late Jure Robic, the greatest endurance athlete of all time....

On many occasions when motivation is lacking for training and the weather is bad and dark, I like to pull out this old interview with Jure Robic, the 5 time winner of Race Across America.

Link to article is  - That Which Does Not Kill Me Makes Me Stranger...

Have a good read.  My favorite quote is:

"He pushes himself into madness" says a journalist from Slovene TV.  "What Jure does is frightening".
Robic seems to regard his racetime bouts with mental instability as one might regard a beloved, but unruly pet:  awkward and embarrassing at times, but impossible to live without....
