ADVICE FROM THE NYCM WOMEN'S WINNER

08 November 2017


“To me, it’s not all about being fast; it’s all about finding your best self. I’m out there, yes, I’m trying to beat other people, but I think a lot of athletes just want to find their true potential—whatever that potential is. I think it’s important to not always compare yourself. Go internal and say, ‘Am I maximizing myself on this day?’ Once people let go of the comparisons, they can actually realize: I’m a great athlete and I’m doing the best I can. That’s a victory in and of itself.”
- Shalane Flanagan – 2017 New York City Marathon Winner and first American in 40 years to win the NYCM.
