All In


Striving for and achieving excellence as a coach or an athlete in not part time commitment, it requires a total commitment. You must be all in. A partial commitment is no commitment at all. Excellence and the drive necessary to achieve it is not a comfortable proposition. You must be a coach or an athlete twenty-four hours a day not just the three or four hours you are training. A wise old coach told early in my coaching career that you couldn’t be a chump off the track and a champ on the track. Truer words have never been spoken. Being a coach or an athlete is not something you, it is something you are. Nothing more, nothing less!
