Quote Of The Day
“Since I started running, I have lived one day at a time in four-year increments. Those four years are set on the Olympic cycles. The 2020 games will most likely be my last cycle in the sport unless, of course, it makes sense for me to stay. My Oklahoma coach, Martin Smith, once told us, ‘Running does not owe you anything.’ My last four years can definitely attest to that. … I touched some success on the track and on the roads, but overall, I felt mediocre in both. Therefore, in this final cycle of my training, I want the marathon to be my hedgehog … The marathon is an animal of a race and truly anything can happen within 26.2 miles. I have witnessed sub-13:00 minute 5,000 meter athletes crumble at the distance, and then seen men who have run 13:40 make marathon teams. It doesn’t necessarily matter what you have run on the track, and that is what intrigues me most about competing in the marathon.”
