Some people think I'm crazy
When I tell people how much I love the track, they look at me, or type at me, like I am insane. But for me it's the best place to learn how to deal with the pain I can experience in a race. If you let the pain in, make it your bitch, you can use it on race day. When you are in your final mile of a race and a PR is within reach, or you want to catch that runner just ahead with your age on their calf, don't be afraid to let it in, use it and just go for it. Yes the track hurts, if you do it right, it's supposed to hurt, but the reward is confidence that you can overcome it. Where do you find your pain to overcome?
