I want to win. That is the goal for everyone in my position. But there are a bunch of guys out there who think they are going to win it, and it is going to be a big battle. I saw last night that it is supposed to be cold, snowy and rainy. I could care less. I would rather it be cold and crappy, but if it is nice it is all the same to me.
I try to be flexible going into all my races; they always unfold differently than you expect. If a pack breaks away early, I will respond. If not, I can sit back. I am confident in my kick and confident in running up front. Whatever it takes to win, I think I have what it takes to do it.

That is the stupidest thing i have ever heard on this site. thats worse than the guy with the crazy running belt thing. Maurice Green first sub 4 mile? First of all. Maurice Green is a sprinter. He has never even run a sub four mile. second of all. ever heard of someone named Rodger Bannister? IDIOT!
