Quote Of The Day
“How often does anyone finish a race feeling nothing but satisfaction? I would wager that for most it is a tally less than or equal to the number of Fast & Furious films. … Runners are notorious for setting a goal for a race, achieving it, and then feeling frustrated or disappointed that they didn’t run faster, or finish further up. This is natural, but wins – even small ones, are hard to come by in the sport of athletics. Often one or two good races are enough to get someone through years of rigorous training. Every positive needs to be embraced. Too often runners present a negative spin on a race they have just completed – nothing ever seems good enough.”
“… ‘Perfection’ is rarely, if ever, achieved and the metrics for perfection are endless. Dean Karnazes’ perfection could be Galen Rupp’s nightmare. … Running cannot consistently be associated with negativity. Once you get too deep into that hole it’s hard to come back. If training and racing isn’t enjoyable (to some degree) then it will inevitably fail.”
