Paris, 2009, heading to Helsinki, Finland for the Masters World Championships…
I’m here to help you stay motivated. Don’t let disappointments convince you to quit. Ever.
Held every two years, the World Master’s Athletics Track and Field championships begin today in Sacramento, California. First time in 15 years Worlds has been on America soil.
With every reason to be bitter for missing this (potential once-in-a-lifetime) home field advantage, I refuse to.

Tip: Find fun ways to use iconic images, stories, legends, customs, traditions. Think of these as logs to add to your fire.
Jack the Bear has travelled the world with jeff noel. More USA National Championships and Olympic trials have been held at Hayward Field than anywhere else. Plus Steve Prefontaine ran here. Pre, a rebel, who just happened to be a runner.
An Olympic Shot Putter. He won Gold – the only one in his age-group, 100-104.
Have adapted a new approach for world class Masters Athletics Track & Field competition. In the past jeff noel over-trained. Didn’t know. Learned the hard way. And it took years to finally wake up. Stupid boy (yep, Keith Urban reference).
So this year, a radically different approach. It’s exciting! Been doing it since late last year. It’s paying off. Refreshing, invigorating and it is, of course, a gamble.
How do you stay excited?

Unexpectedly, it provided a keen reminder of how Disney fanatics feel when they get those rare opportunities to go backstage.
