That first warm day has a different energy. Its electrical current coursing with the possibilities that only an upcoming race season can bring. Running the usual stomping grounds is a who’s who of the local phenoms. You could be them. You are already one of them. But you want to be better than “one of them.” You want to be the best.You rein yourself in from overdoing it on this long run. But the electricity stays with you. That first hint of a season yet to come leaves you tingling with potential. These are the days that add kindling to the lifelong pursuit of being great.
