Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

What a Feeling!

It's amazing how good a PR can feel!  You would think that because you pushed yourself as hard as you ever have (until now) that you would be exhausted and worn-out.  But the emotional part of a PR seems to overcome everything physical, and this elated feeling takes over.  I love what a PR does to my attitude!  The speeding ticket that I got on my way to my race isn't such a big deal now.  ;) 

Speaking of attitude ... Now that I think about it, it is sort of like the chicken and egg -- what came first?  I think attitude plays a major role in achieving that PR.  As I was reflecting on my race this morning trying to figure out what I did differently, I think the main difference was my attitude going into the race.  I wasn't as nervous, and the race was fun!

So, what do you think came first?  The good attitude and then the PR?  Or, the PR and then the good attitude?  I'll take either way.  Just keep 'em coming!  :)
