harder and finish sooner -

Dozens of seconds peeled away with every running of a course,

with the paying customers.
- Joe Henderson

Yet the home courses are where you spend dozens to
hundreds of hours a year.

light,
feelings and thoughts that you find there are ever-changing.

the reverse happens.

so you settle into a pace that feels right to you at the moment.
Each minute above a quota is a little victory.
- Joe Henderson

Speed eventually neared its peak.
The records forced me to work ever harder to drop a less and less time.
These time trials came to feel like races,
which are fun to run sporadically but not daily.
- Joe Henderson

The hours, minutes and seconds stand as visible reminders
that your effort put them all there.
Preserve until your next run, when the watch lets you
see how Impermanent your efforts are.
- Joe Henderson

The Chip also reduces the damage done by bandits.

- Joe Henderson

by running with the watch instead of against it or away from it.

and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.
That statement is only half right.

But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
