Edwin Moses. Probably one of the best hurdles ever, but I bet not many of you know him. He was a 400m hurdler…THE 400m hurdler. A self-trained Olympian, Edwin Moses made running his science. He figured that the perfect stride for the distance would be 13 steps between hurdles and if he did that, he was going to be hard to beat. And hard to beat he was. Starting in the summer of 1977 he began a winning streak. A winning streak that last for 9 years, 9 months, and 9 days. 122 straight races including two Olympic Gold medals. He would take the races by storm and be already far enough in the pack by the second turn where the only way he could lose at that point was if he fell. Nothing to mess with, Edwin Moses, the 400m hurdler and one of the most incredible athletes in track and field history.

omg this makes me so proud of my event

When you look deeply into your anger, you will see that the person you call your enemy is also suffering. As soon as you see that, the capacity of accepting and having compassion for them is there.
