Winners Think Differently

lora legacy duathlon runThere is a great article entitled 5 Key Attributes of Winning Athletes that I read recently that I really liked!

The 5 Key Attributes Include:

1.  Winners set goals. (watch for my video clip on this next week)

2. Winners make good decisions.

3.  Winners plan to win.

4.  Winners visualize success.

5. Winners are constantly learning and asking questions.

I hope you will check it out.  Here’s some of my favorite quotes:

“Winners think differently.  They do.”

“Winners are constantly focused on moving forward, getting things done, taking action and improving…winners are striving to be the best they can be.  They aren’t afraid of hard work”

“I believe winners are made and not born.”

“Winners are confident, but never so confident to think they know it all.  They are always seeking the advice of experts, looking for an advantage, seeking the latest knowledge in the field and doing everything they can to improve.”

“You’ll have setbacks, challenges, and failures along the way.  That is part of the process and completely natural.  Winners have to deal with all of that as well.  If winning was easy, then it wouldn’t be as satisfying!”

#snow #running I forgot how much fun it is to run in the snow. I don’t know about you but running sure brings clarity to me in my life. “Running is a lot like meditation, you get a sense of seeing your life and putting some order to it” Thanks for the great outfit @citycreekathleta I look forward to presenting the Winter Running Clinic on January 3rd, 8:30 – 10 a.m.  There is no cost for this event.  Join us.

Great Product: Hydrosleeve

I am not a big fan of having to carry things in my hands while I am running so recently I’ve been trying out this @hydrosleeve I love it! #nosloshing It is really easy to sip from and keeps the water cold. It’s super high quality too, I could see myself using this on hikes etc. It uses a 7.5 oz bladder, so great for a long run. There are two in the package. If you run a lot it’s worth checking out. They carry them @wasatchrunning

They also have a holiday special at 20% off right now on their website.  Check it out
