It is one of my core beliefs that very few runners ever achieve all they are capable of.
There are many reasons for this, but often it’s simply that people don’t realize that they are capable of doing more and going faster.
Running is one of the few things in life that consistently and generously rewards you for diligent, and intelligent effort.
Of course, no matter how hard you train, to be an elite runner you need to have some talent. But how will you know whether you have the talent unless you push yourself a bit?
There are many exciting stories coming out of the Olympic Trials Marathon, but this has to be one of my favorites.
