2013 – click image above for entire article.

I stopped caring about competing.

… winning and losing somehow ceased to hold meaning.

I had no desire to beat Meb,

only to run with him. 

The outcome was no longer my driving motivation. 

I stopped thinking ahead and kept thinking about now. 

I had no idea what pace we were running, and I didn’t care.
