The only good race pace is suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die.
A lot of people run to see who's the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts.
Something inside of me just said 'Hey, wait a minute, I want to beat him,' and I just took off.
A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways they're capable of understanding.
Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.
George Bernard Shaw

I think we had maybe one bad practice in 39 practices. I think we got better. We had no issues off the field and guys took care of business and I think they got better.
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me
