While reading chapter 1, 2, and 3, the use of visualization has caught my eye.  I find it very interesting because as a runner, I visualize everything before the big race. I visualize where I need to be, who I should catch, where not to get boxed in, and how I’m going to pace myself to win the race.  I try to picture myself placing no matter how tough the course or how much better the other runners are.  So, as I’m standing on the start line, my nerves going crazy, and my legs shaking, the gun goes off and my butterflies sink in.  I think of everything I visualized and put it to work. I get where I need to be and then I give it everything I have at the end.  And usually I end up placing. Visualizing being positive really helped me as a runner and will help me as a speaker to.
