TEAM
Shalane Flanagan, first American woman to win NYC Marathon in 40 years:
“My training is always enhanced when I share it”
The best way to help the team is to be your individual best.
Workouts alone are always more difficult.
Being at practice is important for both you and your teammates.
Honor your commitment to something bigger than yourself.
