You know that you are tough, having survived the phenomenal task of running the “marathon.” You have been committed, and have sacrificed, and suffered much on the path to your big race. You are strong; you are capable; you can endure all. Right?
I have often thought of my marathon training an accomplishment that measures my commitment, and strength. My training has prepared me for the so many trials that have come my way. So often, I look into the face of another, often unrelated, challenge and know that I have what it takes to endure.
Well, I never thought of my interview as an endurance event. I would have been better equipped had I gone into it with that thought in mind. After all, it was *scheduled* as a 3 hour event.
