79 days left workout video

May 30, 2012

Here’s a video filmed and edited by Mike DelMonte from the workout I talked about in the previous post.

 

 

Here’s a random thought I had.  What if a track meet were to allow fans to vote on what event(s) they’re most interested in upon purchasing a ticket.  The more votes an event gets the more money is allocated to that event to bring in better talent.  That means tickets would have to be purchased well in advance (at least 3-4 weeks).  The meet would benefit because people would buy tickets early and the fans would benefit because they would see the stars in the events that matter to them most.  Maybe this could work with smaller meets who cannot afford big starts across all events. Maybe this is a stupid idea.

    You inspire me. I like your spirit. The fighting warrior spirit. You are a hard guy and I love that. We Kenyans often think (incorrectly of course – but self-gratifying egowise – yes, racist) mzungu fellas are not hard. I mean, not as hard as us. Hard in the sense of able to put up with the pain, the years & months of grueling workouts. Able to be patient and watch the slow improvements as you give 110%. I am glad to see you are 100% focused on the Olympics. hammer out the workouts and I am sure something great will come out of it.
