(The Morning Shakeout) Athletics: Podcast: Episode 149 with Keith Kelly
"I was a running nerd in high school. I mean, I’m talking posters on my wall of Steve Cram and Steve Ovett and I desperately wanted to be good at running. And that desperation meant that I didn’t have the best running form and I was missing some things but I could will myself to win races and I could will myself to black out basically because I was like, ‘This is my opportunity to get to the United States and to get to the college system.’ And then you get to the college system and then you realize, ‘OK, wow, I’m not that good because there are so many guys that are good so I’m gonna have to get ready to hurt myself to get really, really good at running in the college system.’ And then you get to that level, and then—for me, after that—it was constantly breaking so I could never really go as deep as I wanted because I would break. But I don’t know where the desire to win comes from other than the desire to just feel like I’ve done my best and to know that when it’s all said and done that I can’t really have any regrets…The ability to go hard and to hurt yourself, yeah, I think some athletes have it better than others—and I would put myself, maybe I could at times, go fairly deep—and I don’t know really where that comes from. I think it’s one of those things where it was more of a desire just to know I’ve done my best, and if my best wasn’t good enough, which in many times it wasn’t, that’s OK, because then I could walk away and be like, ‘Well, that’s as good as I am.’ And I think knowing that can give any athlete a little sense of peace or a sense of calm."

"There were definitely a number of times where I found myself just trying to analyze every single aspect of what I was doing different from the year before, or what I wasn’t doing different from the year before, and why there were any of these discrepancies in how I was running and I think that was the only stretch of time where I let myself get to that point because I realized that it definitely was an unfortunate sort of spiral to find yourself in because the more you think about, ‘Oh man, what am I doing wrong?’ or ‘What do I need to be doing better? Maybe that’s why I’m not running so fast.’ There’s no shortage and no way to stop yourself from finding more and more things that you can fix—or convince yourself need fixing—even when maybe all it’s coming down to is you’re spending way too much time in your own head and not just letting the training do what it’s supposed to do and go along for the ride because sometimes it’s really all you need to do."

"Running, for me, is an act of a rebellion. There’s subtext in which if there’s a BIPOC person on the starting line and you see a picture of them in a sea of people, I feel like you’re really giving a narrative that goes against the grain in terms of what society is expecting of you or how society views you. So running, for me, is my personal act of rebellion. It is something that goes against the grain as to what you do as a first generation Indian-American. From our background, there is a huge emphasis on education in the sense of becoming a doctor, becoming an engineer—and doing something that I feel like juxtaposes that in a sense of what people expect out of you is rebellion to me."

(The Morning Shakeout) Athletics: https://themorningshakeout.com/podcast-episode-146-with-nathan-martin/
"I like pushing myself and that’s one thing about running, too: You can argue, there’s not a crazy amount of technical stuff—like when you get into some of those track events like hurdles and stuff, it’s crazy technical—but, you know, it’s that idea that it’s your will versus what your body’s kind of telling you, right? Or, in some cases, like you’re fighting against somebody else. So just being able to get into a race and say, ‘You know what, it’s time to go,’ and just test your body is what I gravitate towards—and don’t get me wrong, sometimes I do that and I’m like, ‘Why in the world did I do that? I am in so much pain,’ but a lot of the time it’s just awesome that I have the opportunity to do that. I’m not necessarily a person who’s going to back down from somebody. Sometimes I’ll be cautious, like, ‘OK, this is not the right time to be making these moves.’ But, you know, when it comes down to the last little bit of the race, if I have something in me, I’m going to push hard and I’m going to try and dig as deep as I can to finish."
