I don’t know if it’s a you-gotta-fake-it-til-you-make-it type of thing or you just gotta… you just gotta feel awesome. So whatever makes you feel like you can be a little brave or a little sassy when you need to when the race hurts! Or if you catch a little bit of lace in the corner of your eye when it’s really painful and you might smile um then… It’s a very mental sport, so whatever makes it fun… That’s what you gotta do!
