“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”
~George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian
Once upon a time, I had this amazing idea to run a 10K. I didn’t think I had it in me. I didn’t train enough to be a rock star, just enough to make it without dying. I survived. As bad as it sucked, I enjoyed the challenge of doing something I didn’t think I could.
I finished the Peachtree in Atlanta this weekend…but I wouldn’t call it a stellar performance.

So what I can I do to push myself farther?
