ME AND MY MANTRA
Let’s jump back to 2008 for this story, shall we.
My sister-in-law Bonnie was the first person who told me I should get a running mantra.
When I first heard her mention it, I was like “Who shot who in the what now”* (incidentally this is what I say when someone says something that completely baffles me).
She explained it simply as a word (or words) or a phrase that you say to yourself when a race is getting tough and you need to focus and push on.
