Quote for the Day

Sorry for two in a row, but I think these are good! I did a half marathon this weekend and noticed that for the last three miles me feet where stomping the ground and I did not have the quick turnover that I've been working on for the last six months. So I really focused on that, shortening my stride and keeping my upper body relaxed. As mentally hard as it was to do that, I knew it would it would make my running easier. Plus I kept the B-52's song "Rock Lobster" going through my head, trying to match my tempo to that quick beat! :-)

Experience has taught me how important it is to just keep going, focusing on running fast and relaxed. Eventually pain passes and the flow returns. It's part of racing.
