I’m not training for a specific race right now. I did the BMW Dallas Half Marathon in December after weeks of training and fears that there was no way my dizzy head could handle the grind of 13 miles.
A few weeks ago I watched a movie called, “Remember the Goal.” The acting was less than stellar, but the movie followed a Christian girls’ cross country team’s chase for a state championship.
A new coach shows up to train the girls and her tactics seem to go against everything the team knows about training. She advises slow, easy runs instead of hard efforts, and a few of the girls get upset and then the parents call for her firing, and there’s some drama in there.
