My vote for the best article of the year on flrunners. If you are a young female distance runner, don’t overlook this article. Sustainability in distance running requires believing that achieving success requires cultivating a healthy mindset (the sooner the better) more than it requires seeking a specific training plan. Part of the foundation work for cultivating a healthy mindset is high quality reading. It is mental BASE TRAINING…and this article is mental BASE TRAINING for girls.... at its best. It is wisdom! don't miss it. Coach Douma. North Marion High School

Agreed. While there are many valuable articles, IMHO this is the best. I will be sharing it with the kids and parents. Doug Horn Head Coach-Cross Country/Track & Field Spanish River HS

Every high school girl runner needs to read this, especially the cross country girls. It breaks my heart to see the number of girls that should be blossoming into young women beat themselves up simply because of times. Their role models should be the number of very healthy girl state champions who enjoy a burger & fries once in a while.
