2019 HOKA ONE ONE Spring Track & Field Training Week 8, Day 1: Beginning the week


This past six weeks, I travelled to Boston, then, Germany, Poland, Spain, the UK and Germany once again to see some of the finest athletes in the world compete and how each country puts on their events. I was fascinated with some of the new stars coming up, and like to observe Coaches with their athletes. The big lesson? The attention and the wins are made in the daily details: sleep, hydration, nutrition, core work, and focus. This past weekend at the USATF indoors, I watched some exciting races and world bests. Again, the athletes who excell, like Ce'Aira Brown and her HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC team mates work every day to get something better. Follow your heart. Stay focused.
