Athletes: If you want to be the best runner you can be, you can't sit around wishing it to happen. There is no secret short cut, the only way to improve as a runner is to get out and run......alot. Soon it will become your habit, and it will become your passion.
So whatever your goals are, put your shoes on and make it happen!
