The Myers Mile

A Virtual Track Camp, From April 27 - June 6
Week 2: An Interview with State Champ Cori Schulte

How's your training going this week?  These are ideal days to get out, train hard, and start dreaming about races to come. 

We totally get it - right now, motivation can be tough.  But your competition might not be getting out the door today.  If you do, that's a huge advantage that you hold over them.  That advantage builds day by day, and this is a moment when you can define yourself as a runner.  Keep working hard.  Every step is worth it. 

Today, we caught up with Cori Schulte, a former Ohio state champion in the mile.  Cori tells us what it's like to win a state title, what kind of training it took, and what advice she has for her own daughters as they follow in her footsteps.  We asked Cori to tell us about a time when things didn't go her way, and we absolutely love her answer and her understanding for all of today's track athletes who are losing their season.  Cori lost her own senior track season to injury, but that didn't stop her.  She rose back up and ran in college, competing on the track and in XC before moving into coaching later in life. 

Setbacks don't have to stop us.  When we rise above them, they can define us - but we get to choose how they define us by how we keep moving forward.  Thanks for the inspiration and the great advice, Cori.  You can find her full interview at the bottom of this page.
