Stretching was a major part of my preparation.
My concentration level blocks out everything. Concentration is why some athletes are better than others. You develop that concentration in training and concentrate in a meet.
I went to Moorehouse College. There was no track and field there.
The joint lubrication was not what it was when I was competing, and I decided that not having arthritis or rheumatism for the rest of my life was a lot more important to me than returning to the track.
Lots of people let it go by and never accomplish what they want. I just wanted to see what I could do.
