I wanted to share my coach’s most recent blog post, since it comes at a great time for all of us training for a fall goal race.
As I prepared to meet with a group of my runners to talk about their marathon and half marathon race plans, I wanted a new way to describe the spirit of a long distance race plan. From there we can plug in their personally specific details. I have described the thinking on race days as transforming from a pessimist, to a realist, to an optimist. Here I offer a quote for each race segment that will transform you over the race distance.
