MUST-READS! (Princess Meghan and JRo!)
First: our very own JRO in Runner's World!!!!! No one knows mental toughness like this guy. Excited for you, Dr. Ross!!!!
Deep thought for this week: be thankful that you aren't a princess. What would you give up for love? I COULD NOT give up marathons. https://runningmagazine.ca/meghan-markle-prohibited-from-running-london-marathon/ I'm working on a long piece about that fuzzy term 'natural talent' as applied to athletic ability or 'promise'. This article hits me in all the feels and each time I read it, I spin out for a different reason. http://www.runblogrun.com/2018/07/the-roads-not-taken-the-untold-story-of-janet-bristol-one-of-americas-most-promising-distance-runner.html
Note: I read a LOT. Like, a lot lot. Mostly obscure articles, out of print books, and message boards about running. #obsessed I am *thinking* of starting a Nuzzle newsletter to share only the salient/cool/pertinent things I like, let me know if you would be interested.
