Brooks presents: 2022 RunBlogRun Spring Middle Distance Daily Track Training (800m-5000m), Week 1, Day 5

| 0 Comments

Life is full of challenges. At all ages. In high school, I placed last, dead last, in every high school cross country and track race my freshman year. In my sophomore year, this position changed slightly. During the summer after my sophomore year, I ran lots of miles and came into cross country in shape. Not finishing last, but mid pack, was a revelation. In track, I came close to winning several races. It would not be for five more years before I won a college race, and the feeling was amazing. My life lesson? Be patient with yourself, give yourself time to develop, in sports, and in academia. Never be afraid of hard work, but work with some savvy. Ask your coach, and actually listen. Now, go enjoy your run.
