This is one of my favorite videos of a race I won with a kick – a skill that I practiced through training, visualizing, and race strategy.
Let’s be honest, races are meant for winning! Yes, there are all sorts of other tangible goals a runner can have such as running personal bests, setting records, advancing through rounds, etc, but if you win every race the rest will fall into place. Unfortunately, I think many young runners sell themselves short of winning the race, and try to make their goals too complicated and too reliant on a very specific and narrow time goal.
