A Pic and A Quote #22: BOLDNESS

“Competitive runners will tell you – when their racing careers are over and they look back on their best races – they remember the moves they made, the BOLD ones that thrilled. Whether the move resulted in victory or defeat, doesn’t matter.  They remember them the same, with pride, knowing they took a chance.  They put themselves on the line when they attacked.  They never remember the moves they didn’t make. ”

WHO (left to right): Kelly Madden leading Kristen Perini (#42) Liberty AC – Perini ended up 3rd, while Madden faded to the top 50.

Editor’s Note: Due to the graciousness of Jeff Johnson, John Goegel and others, we are carrying over a series begun during the track season on our sister site, newhampshiretrackandfield.com .  For those of you that don’t know, Jeff Johnson was employee #1 of Nike.  He actually is the one responsible for naming the company.  Fortunately for us, he was also a world class photographer of our great sports in the 1960s and 1970s during which he captured thousands of sports photographs.  We are honored and thankful for their choice to use our sites as their medium for sharing their passion.  We hope our presentations can do them justice!
