Pics and Quote #32: Barriers

“The majority of ‘barriers’ to athletic achievement exist only in our minds and influence only those who cannot see beyond the limits imposed by their everyday experiences.  We don’t know of what we are capable ” – Jeff Johnson

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, .  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!
