Athlete Accomplishments: March 2019

If March had a theme in racing, it’s that you are stronger than you think. Several of the runners I coach raced in March after months of hard winter training. Others completed hard workouts and long runs with their sights set on spring and early summer races. 

The most exciting thing about racing is not just the finish times; it’s when an athlete has an “I can’t believe I just did that” moment. Several of these runners did more than run a distance faster than before: they crossed the finished line with a new sense of their physical strength, mental grit, and abilities as runners. Some runners found themselves stronger on hills than before; others realized just how deep they could dig at the end of the race. Others ran new distances or ventured into trail racing and found a huge sense of accomplishment there.
