It’s easier said than done but RUNNING YOUR OWN RACE is one of the most important aspects of racing.
If you run someone else’s race you risk *hitting the wall* and not hitting your goal.
LISTEN to that little voice inside of you that tells you to HAVE PATIENCE and follow the plan – BIG THINGS CAN HAPPEN.
Boston Marathon sent out a newsletter recently with this picture:
I literally can NOT stop looking at it. It makes me smile.
Desi Davila more than 30 meters off the front pack at the 15K went on to come in 2nd place female. She also went on to win a spot on the US Olympic Marathon team by finishing in the top 3 females at the Houston Trials.
Make your own choices in life. Do what works for YOU in terms of training and racing. Be true to yourself.
In less than 2 weeks I WILL BE RUNNING my own race at B & A Marathon. I will resist the urge to go with the pack that will likely shoot off the starting line. I will remember I am there to race no one but MYSELF. I will have patience and I will not get discouraged.
*I believe you
