Shhhh…I’ll tell you a secret. Every runner has doubts. It’s just human nature. EVERYONE has that little voice in their head that’s willing to be insecure.

Don’t. You’ll run better when you tell your doubts to shut the h*ll up.
TRUST in your abilities. Trust in yourself…have confidence.
It’s a sick irony that some of the most capable, amazingly talented people (and runners) are held back by one little thing…
An inner self-critic robs you of your confidence, it steals your achievements, it cripples you, it institutes your limits. Quite often with us type-A runners, we can turn into our own worst enemies.
That should make you PISSED, get mad as h*ll!! Turn that rage AGAINST the inner critic. Use that fiery anger to erase your doubts and instead…
Underestimate Me: Confidence is malleable, believe in yourself through it all
