Quote Of The Day
“I follow Farah on Twitter. (I’ll admit it: I’m that much of a track geek). And I always get the sense, reading his tweets, that he really enjoys himself, particularly that he enjoys training. Now, is it possible I’m being mislead by Farah’s clever social media strategy? Sure. But maybe not. He reminds me a little of Roger Federer, whose longevity appears to be largely a function of the fact that, long past the point where his peers have grown tired of all the hours of preparation necessary to continue to be an elite tennis player, Federer is still really into it. Isn’t Farah the same way? And isn’t that explanation enough? I mean, every week he posts a photo of himself grinning while racing around a track with one of his training partners. Grinning! I don’t know about you, Nick, but I do not grin while doing intervals.”
