General running information and thoughts from a guy who has gone around the track too many times.

Tag Archives: Bob Richards

Often, I am asked how to improve as a runner.  I give a simple response; run and run more.  That’s all it takes is a daily practice of running.  Running and more running.  Slow running, fast running.  Running up and down hills.

Years ago I use to listen to motivational tapes (yes tapes) by Bob Richards.  Richards is an Olympian Pole Vaulter who earned the gold medal in 1952 and 1956.  For those of us who where born in the 50′s, know Richards as he man selling Wheaties Cereal on TV.   In one of his talks he said something like “if you want to be good at something do it eight hours a day.  If you want to pole vault, then pole vault.  Whatever you want to become spend the time doing it”.   Good wisdom.

Today, go practice those things you want to be good at.
