Brooks Presents: 2022 RunBlogRun Mid-Range Spring Training Daily Track Training (800 m-5,000 m), Week 1, Day 5

Life is full of challenges. At any age. In high school, I placed last, very last, in every high school cross-country and track race in the first year. In my sophomore year, this position changed slightly. During the summer after the second year, I ran a lot of kilometers and got into cross country. The last but not the middle package was over, it was a revelation. On the track I approached winning several races. It won’t be another five years before I win a college race, and the feeling was amazing. My life lessons? Be patient with yourself, take the time to develop, in sports and on campus. Never be afraid of hard work, but work with a little wit. Ask your coach and really listen. Now go enjoy the run.
