Years ago when I could run fast, I received shoes from a manufacturer. Occasionally the shoes were prototypes or special colors. Once I had a pair of feather weight racing flats which were black with yellow swooshes, a one of a kind pair. Three or four nights per week, I would take these shoes into my office and stare at them.

This unusual behavior was part of preparing my mind for racing. Mental training typically has four stages: progressive relaxation, deep breathing, centering, and mental rehearsal or visualization. To begin this training, I would step into my office and close the door.
