Lane 8 Credentials, Two Lists

Lane 8 FAQ’s:  What is it?  Why are you doing it?  How do you get to go?

Here are two lists of my “credentials”:

  1. Consistently run faster than the USATF All-American Standard of Excellence
  2. Compete at the State & National levels (and do really well)
  3. Figure out how to pay for expenses, time & money, to go to Finland
  4. Have enough guts to do the impossible
  5. Run as fast as USATF establishes as the age group world-class equivalent
  6. Indomitable will
  7. God’s Grace

That is the short list, of the big requirements.  There are other, lesser criteria, but I’ll spare you the details.  But, if you really want to know:

  1. Out work ’em
  2. Run hard
  3. Run far
  4. Stretch
  5. Strength train
  6. Core train
  7. Stay healthy
  8. Repair injuries
  9. Nutrition
  10. Rest
  11. Continuous Improvement
  12. Inspiration
  13. Balance
  14. Family Involvement
  15. Commitment
  16. Tenacity
  17. Perseverance
  18. Pray

There.  Any questions?  Carpe diem, jeff noel, out in Lane 8  🙂
