Animal Inside

That little voice has been calling out to me during workouts lately. That base, instinctual urge that drives athletes forward to the next challenge.

Visceral. Primal. Unrelenting. And impossible to ignore... That voices dares and taunts me:

"go further... go faster... go... now!"

What choice do I have?

"Be a good animal, true to your animal instincts."
