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

For me it's the knowledge of how much I've redefined myself. Less than a year ago I weighed 275 pounds and couldn't really even walk for more than 20 minutes. Yesterday I ran seven miles. It's such a good feeling to know you can redefine yourself at any stage in your life. After going from an obese couch potato to becoming a runner, I don't really need anything else to geek me up for it. I'm definitely hooked.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
