“Running to win!”

If you are an athlete, this is a must read!

The Race is an athlete’s view of a race. It is a top coach’s view of running a race to win. It is a brief but intense, dynamic account of what goes through an athlete’s mind before, during and after running a 400m race – the routine of preparation, the mental focus, the discipline and control necessary for success. 

This book is a motivational read and if you are serious about competing at a high level, then you really should read this!
