Quote of the Day:
What I learned in track from my coaches:
Track develops Strength and Self Discipline ...
Self discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts.  If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do.
... and when dealing with others ...
Nothing is as strong as gentleness, nothing is a gentle as real strength.

John Deal
