the head. Well said!!! And very true.

Ed and Mark can help you with the physical side of your training, but only
you can establish the "mental" side of your training. Mark and Ed are where
they are at because they are physically tough but also mentally tough.
Although I have never competed for what you are training for, what I can
contribute is the need for mental toughness. Decide what you want and let
nothing else get in the way. The head will give up before the body will
quit. Just keep focused and don't ever rationalize giving up. The physical
training will come to you. In your spare time, practice the "never quit"
attitude that will carry you through. Winning is a state of mind as much as
it is physical.
