champions are made
in the off-season, in the freezing rain, in the weight room, on the treadmill, in the ice buckets, on holidays, on weekends, on friday nights, saturday mornings, on the road, on the track, on the trail, in the woods, in the blazing sun, at 6 in the morning
when no one is watching
Water boils at 212 degrees fahrenheit. Paper burns at 451 degrees fahrenheit. Not 450. Not 211. It’s gotta have that one more degree. You have to give it that one extra push. Your blood’s gotta be boiling and your legs’ gotta be burning. That’s how you pull to the finish, and that is how you win. No excuses.

Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged?
You are iron.
And you are strong.
