“You spend too much time and too much hard work just to be mediocre,” said Jones. “I want to be one of the best in the world. In order to do that, I’ve got to have a plan that’s going to get me there.”Nice quotes in this article by Randy Starkman of the Toronto Star on the Canadian men working toward London 2012.
In related news, at the Hamilton Boxing Day 10 Miler:
The 10-miler — held in sunshine, with seasonal temperatures and no snow on the ground — was won by Kyle Jones of Victoria, B.C., in 50 minutes, 28 seconds. First-place female honours went to Lucy Njeri of Toronto (15th overall).
“I ran with three other guys for the first five miles,” said Jones, a 27-year-old native of Oakville. “Then there was an uphill section (at Chedoke golf course) where I was able to pull away. I just kind of pushed the pace the rest of the way.”
Solid effort from Kyle - getting the work done on his Christmas visit home to Ontario.
