Hanna Finchamp has an excellent recap of her second place result at last week's BWR. Our favorite bit:
I was bluffing to myself. I realized that if I was going to fight for the win I had to convince myself it didn’t hurt as much as it did. Sentences like, “The pace will slow down soon,” “I’ll get a second wind in a couple of miles,” “Everyone hurts just as much as I do,” continually rang in my head.
