Lane 8 jeff noel

That first track season was exciting. It provided new and abundant motivational fuel. It ended poorly, but that only made my resolve greater. And I set out on the long, slow road to hamstring-tear recovery.

Long story short, the next year, wiser and much more focused, I ripped the other hamstring.

Stupid boy.

Can You Feel The Tension?

The jar of beads is less than half-full…

Can you feel the tension? It’s beginning to choke me.

Am getting another rush of urgency.

Apathy disgusts me. Wish I could accept apathy. Can’t. Won’t. Promised I wouldn’t.

How do you personally battle apathy, and apathetic people?

Sundays in August. You Tube videos. Perfect timing for a look back one year ago.

Lane 8 makes you want to do something when you consider this man was 100 years old and still competing in sports – the Shot Put no less.

Predictions?

No Predicting What Lies Ahead
No Predicting What Lies Ahead

Do you have a big goal you want to accomplish by this time next year?

What’s it going to take?

We contemplate what we believe we can do. You know, we take what we’ve done and think about what we’ll be able to do when we get the next chance to try again.

It’s kind of like being an armchair quarterback.

Sitting in the comfort of our living room, watching the game, or World Cup, we comment like we know what we’re talking about.

Nothing will ever replace the preparation, wisdom, courage and guts of “game day”.

There is one prediction. July 2011. Masters Track & Field World Championships in Sacramento.

World Championships?  Are you kidding me?

Ten years ago, absolutely.

Today, not so much.

Most people can not even fathom what it would take to compete at a world-class level. Which is perfect, because Lane 8 isn’t about how to run faster, it’s about how to never stop running…..or walking, or swimming, or cycling, or dancing, or whatever it is that you find motivation to do.

Just keep moving.  Just keep eating well. Just keep being a great health example to the people you care about. That’s why Lane 8 exists.
