Yesterday’s 400m final results.


Ordinary is what we expect.

Yet extraordinary is happening constantly.

Yesterday was a special moment for South Africa and for the 400 meter race at the 2015 Track & Field World Championships in Beijing’s Birdnest stadium (home of the 2008 Olympic Games).

Never before have three runners in the same heat broken the 44-second barrier.

The winner ran the 4th fastest 400 meters ever, in the history of Track & Feld.

Michael Johnson holds the world record (since 1999) at 43.18.

Lane 8 is where the slowest competitor is placed. In swimming. In running.

You never saw Michael Phelps (world’s fastest swimmer) in Lane 8.  You never saw Usain Bolt (world’s fastest runner) in Lane 8.

And yet Lane 8 is my goal.

This week, like most of you, there was a serious struggle to find the right balance of physical activity and healthy nutrition.  Diet and exercise.

Dream Big. Get There.  Stay There.

Come up with a mantra, a saying, that will keep you focused on one simple goal.

To not give up, no matter the set backs.  Ever!
