I know what I want when I start a marathon: to win! But what do you want? Make sure you're clear in advance and don't go out too fast.
You know the marathon in my country is just exceptional. It's like soccer in England. If England win the world cup and Ethiopia win the marathon - it's the same.
You need three things to win: discipline, hard work and, before everything maybe, commitment. No one will make it without those three. Sport teaches you that.
Always, if you win mentally, you can win physically as well.
In the marathon a crazy athlete can just keep pushing from the beginning, at a championship you don't need a time just to win the race.
What is important is to win.
You know, I want to help my country. Definitely I can help them, simply by winning races. Sure, they can follow my path to a good career. But for me it is not enough. I want to be more than that. In everything I want to be a role model.
