    • Thanks and I’ll tell you a secret…I was TORN with using that tagline for the track for just what you said!! I kept on there because in the end I thought, the track will only play mind games with you if you let it. Don’t let that bugger get in your head and intimidate you from reaching your goals. 😉

  1. I love that little comic strip… especially the last one. Running is brutally honest and I have to remember the mind games really are all in my head.

    I think the track sometimes does play games, though. Sometimes it just looks like a long ways around. Or is that in my head?? 🙂
