I won't back down. I get a satisfaction from being tested and defeating the test.
There's never going to be a decathlon that you're going to have 10 events that your satisfied with. You're always, always going to be dissatisfied in something, and that always draws you back to try to retry that the next time you do a decathlon. It's like you go for the perfect 10.
I think a challenge for myself is to see how many times I can get above 9,000. That would be a good challenge.
That is when the crowd really lifted me. That last 600 meters I was not running with my own legs. It was incredible.
I want to see where I measure up against everyone in the world and everyone who has ever competed in the sport, and there's that innate sense of wanting to challenge myself. I'm competitive in all aspects.
