Distance running requires that athletes be in tune with both their body and mind. To be successful, an athlete must regulate his or her pace throughout the race while monitoring for physical and mental fatigue. Additionally, the thoughts athletes have throughout a race (“I started too slow” or “My legs feel strong”) can greatly influence their physical performance (both positively and negatively). When every second is important, being mentally tough can help you overcome physical and mental adversity.
