Ricky —our ability to perform up to our physiological potential in a race is determined by whether or not we truly psychologically believe that what we are attempting is realistic. Anton Krupicka
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Now that was a bath...
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Do a radio interview. On the interview, commit to running a race, say a big marathon for example. Make sure that everybody you know is aware of the radio interview.
You WILL run that race
Oh, and register for a race that is a bit in the future. I always find that I don't want to waste my money if I've already paid the fee for entry!
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

get thee a nemesis. someone you MUST beat no, not just beat destroy, anhilate, vaporize. for me it was jeff bennighoff he outsprinted me in sophmore year a XC meet and he became the bane of my existence. whenever I felt like slacking off or goofing off I remembered losing to him and thought "Benninghoff is training right now" he kept me motivated for 2 more years and helped going thru some nasty track workouts
