OCR World Championship - 15k Recap

Other than my 50 mile ultra-marathon, I am more proud of this race than any other I’ve ever run... performing so well on such a massive, world stage is my greatest athletic accomplishment to date. I threw down a time of 2:11, good for 95th overall in my age group. I went in hoping for a sub 2:30 finish and top 100 in my age group, nailed both!

Discipline is what creates champions, not motivation, not inspiration, not cute little phrases like "don't quit", and "grind on" and "keep your streak alive". No one is perfect here, not you... not I... not Mr. Phelps himself in his prime.
