Postcards From the Edge...and Ultrarunnning


I just found this quote and it really fascinates me.  Now I gotta see this circa 1990 film (I presume it's on video):


"I think that's what maturity is: a stoic response to endless reality."

- -- Carrie Fisher, "Postcards From the Edge"


And the relationship with Ultrarunning?  Our sport is an outlet, a crutch, a diversion, a lark, a lifestyle, a hobby, a fitness regime, a passion, an incidental excursion, a fad, an exploration, a commitment, a stoic response to endless reality.....

Your mileage may vary.
