Breaking Dawn or breaking down yesterday’s post?

Lane 8 just before M50 prelims at 2009 Masters Track World Championships
Lane 8 is reserved for the slowest runner in the 400 meters race


Breaking Dawn or breaking down yesterday’s post?:

1. Impossible goal = earning Lane 8 (the worst lane for the slowest runner) in the 400 meters (at the World Championships)

2. Ongoing, compelling short term goal(s) = next week’s 12th annual Windermere Run Among the Lakes 5k (my very 1st 5k ever in 2003)

3. Turning negatives into positives = cranked out a 5:56 mile yesterday, even with a very strong headwind.

Motivation is like a fire.

What if we acted like we know how to add fuel to it. All the time.

What would happen?

If not us, who?

If not now, when?
