Quote Of The Day
“One of the best things sport has given me is confidence in myself. I don’t go on LetsRun. I know what it is. I don’t listen to or seek out message boards or other people’s opinions. I know what work I’m doing. If someone says I have a zero percent chance then maybe they’ve just looked at my PRs on paper. If someone else showed me my PRs on paper and said this person wants to win Olympic gold, I’d probably laugh just like you. I’d say ‘Uh. Yeah. Good luck!’ I haven’t really proven anyone else’s belief and until I go out there and perform, no one should go out there and believe me. That’s what my goal is. That’s what I believe I can do. I know I couldn’t do it tomorrow. It’s going to take hard work, consistent training, being confronted by the world standard, being dropped on runs, looking at other athletes and being wowed. It’s going to take a lot of work but I’m willing to go for it.”
