But I am very grateful to be so close to the Shoreline Road Race Series jacket!! On Thanksgiving Day, I will run the last 5 miles of this series and earn a jacket to commemorate the accomplishment. At this race, Daniella earned her jacket. Leilannie and I earn ours next month!
Besides completing the series, I have given myself a new goal. I feel like the goal of a PR was exhausting. But there is a new goal, which has been accomplished last race and so close to be accomplished at this race. It has been discouraging to be in the last 10 or 20 people of races, so my new goal is to beat 50 people and be as close to the middle of the pack as possible. And I am happy to report I beat 43 people in this race. In Trumbull, last week, I beat 56! New goals are always fun!
PR by 1 second!
“The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I'm not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there's two things: You're getting off first, or I'm going to die. It's really that simple, right? You're not going to out-work me. It's such a simple, basic concept. The guy who is willing to hustle the most is going to be the guy that just gets that loose ball. The majority of people who aren't getting the places they want or aren't achieving the things that they want in this business is strictly based on hustle. It's strictly based on being out-worked; it's strictly based on missing crucial opportunities. I say all the time if you stay ready, you ain't gotta get ready.” -Will Smith
