      1. It doesn't always get worse.

      2. Right foot, left foot, repeat.

      3. Learn to avoid the easy places to drop from a race.

      4. You can't put miles in the bank.

      5. The hardest part about any run is the first 50 yards.

      6. Smiling and encouraging others in a race will help you more that it will them.

      7. If you take enough gel, you will realize that every brand has a vomit flavor.

      8. Cartilage makes running easier.
