Words to Live By

Every time I go for a race, my coach says this quote to me. It has become a joke between us swimmers, but it has good meaning behind it all. Many of the girls on my team overthink their race and end up not doing as well as they wanted and being very discouraged. However, if we followed his advice, we’d realize that the race is not that hard, we just have to go in there and not think too much, trust our training, and know that this is not the worst thing to happen to us if we don’t do as well as we thought.
