Ferguson,_Richard.jpg__.jpgNone of us were born being positive or negative thinkers. We have all learned to think in a positive or negative manner through varied life and socialization experiences. The word “learn” is the key here! We can all learn to become more positive in how we approach our running and how we approach life in general.

Life has its ups and downs, ongoing challenges, and obstacles that must be overcome. We can use these challenges as an excuse for not trying or even as an excuse for failing, or we can look at challenges as an opportunity to become successful.

Mather,_Carolyn.jpg__.jpgThe death of Sally Meyerhoff was the main topic as the elite field assembled at the 34th Gate River Run national 15K championship. Sally died instantly when she crashed her bicycle into a truck after failing to yield the right of way. We were all reminded how precious and fragile life is and how quickly it can be gone. Sally was a friend, one of my dark horse picks to make the 2012 Olympic team and an incredible role model for young athletes. She had just obtained her professional triathlete license and finally had her life exactly where she wanted it to be.

NPR transcribed the report, "The Game Goes On" which was broadcast Tuesday, May 3:,

"Talaya Owens is on the university's women's track team, which decided at the last minute to attend a key track meet in Des Moines last weekend.

It was a tough call: Eleven of the team's athletes were displaced. The team didn't do quite as well as they'd hoped — they were tired, stressed out and their flight was so late they barely made the meet. But the thousands gathered cheered them like they were the home team.
