    7 weeks out now from Nashville and I have a 16 scheduled for this weekend.  The weekly mileage is getting up there pretty good as well.  Legs feel exhausted some days and great on others which is about what I would expect.

    This week at the track and field World Championships Sanya Richards won the 400 meter final to become the World Champion at this distance.  But it is the story behind it that I appreciate.  Sanya has been ranked number one in the world for the last four years and won meet after meet but never a […]
