Tips for a distance kind of mind.
1. Find a way to enjoy the journey, your physical point A to B or all the things you have achieved that got you there, training, support or all the people that believe in you. Cliché, but if you do not. Ask yourself what brought you there in the first place and then go to my second pointer. Otherwise just keep on enjoying until you still need my second tip, every race has that moment.
2. Try to reach the first 1/3 of the race. Once there, imagine there is only half a third left until half way. Once half way, well then you are on your way home again = downhill + theres only half a third to 2/3 and that is so much past half way that you might as well finish.
