Quote of the day!

"Concentration is why some athletes are better than others. You develop that concentration in training. You can't be lackluster in training and concentrate in a meet."
Olympian, Edwin Moses

I had a hour and a half run today that I really wanted to nail so I ran alone and really used these words. No music...just me and the sun rising over a beautiful calm lake. I felt my heart beat, I used perfect form, I pushed hard and I felt like I had really made the workout count. From now until Lake Placid I think I shall concentrate and focus more. I know I shall have to dig deep at times but I want to do this so I have no excuses race day!
