At our most recent marathon practice, Coach Kate suggested that I was over-navigating. I had deliberately kept up a stream of directions and reminders, often saying the same thing three times in the manner of NASCAR spotters who repeat themselves to insure they are heard over the track noise. She thought that perhaps my talking was keeping Greg from focusing far enough ahead.
Fair enough. We tried again. I shifted my weight, but didn’t say a word. We did the exact same pattern we had just done twice.
He went off course.
