I want to push the team to be their best and to run for fun. I want to instill in them that competition is great and it's no secret that we love to win, but we should run because we LOVE to run. It's not always about winning and losing, it's about the feeling you get when you're running faster than you thought you could. It's that unmistakable feeling of freedom. The track is where we belong and I want that feeling to remain in my heart, and the hearts of my teammates as long as we're on the track”. Well said Sydney, well said.
