NWRA Pre-Gun Deer Hunting Season

So, next week starts gun deer at NWRA which means this was my last run there for the next month. It was fantastic, pulled in the weekly long run, roughly 16.5m with a 42 minute loop tempo. Took some photos that I will post later.
Just thought I would post this piece. It's an excellent read for mental training. Food for the mind!

If you think you're beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win, but think, you can't
It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you will lose, you're lost;
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will,
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to hustle before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.
-Walter D. Wintle, "The Man Who Thinks He Can"
