Quote Of The Day
“One time I watched Sarah Bowman Brown run 4:40 at the end of mile repeats. I thought, ‘Well, she ran a bunch of miles at sub 5 min pace. I can probably at least run one.’ (I even used the fact that both of us have quite large calves as biomechanical proof as to why I could run a 30 second PR). I thought this because I was probably an idiot freshman. You have to believe it before you do it. And sometimes, to believe it, you have to have no clue that human limits are even a thing.”
“The problem with being a professional, is you are elder. You have no one that totally revamps your idea of ‘fast.’ Your ignorance is gone, and your limits are in plain sight. The question is: how do you become stupider? By going back to the college ways, probably.”
– Phoebe Wright blogging about her theory that college running might actually be better for your running career than professional running.
