What goes on in the mind of a an elite athlete?  What are they thinking about just before a major break through? These questions and many like it have ran through my mind. As I searched for the answer, I began to realize that those whom we look up to are not that different from us mortals. Many of the lessons I saw could be used in daily life as well during an ultra-marathon.

This blog is my quest to find out what it takes to become one of those zen like athletes or that guy who seems like the master of his universe.
