In your mind, not your legs

I'm definitely excited about this weekend's New York Marathon. Here's a link to a story that was in the Washington Post.

It focuses on Kenya's Paul Tergat who won last year in a sprint to the finish with South Africa's Hendrick Ramaala.

The article is chock full of great quotes, especially the kicker at the end. A reporter asked Tergat about speed work and how it prepares one for a finishing kick.

Tergat responded:
"It's not mainly about the finish. It's how you are going to arrive there. If it is to come to a sprint finish, whether you win or whether you lose it is in your mind, not your legs."
