"There's only one hard and fast rule in running: sometimes you have to run one hard and fast."
Tuesday, July 7, 2015
If you do the prep work, success or failure becomes just a matter of circumstance, but to do the prep work, you have to first be willing to do it. You have to be willing to not just work harder than everyone else, but harder than anyone else believes is possible, to put in superhuman effort repeatedly, continuously, until the goal you've set seems a foregone conclusion, almost an afterthought. Then you have to make sure you're not just working hard to work hard, but toward that goal.
Steve says hi. Like in the last line of a letter (remember when people wrote letters?) between two people who both know him. Like that. Hi.
Oh, and I write about running. 35 years and nearly 600 races thus far.
