The insanity of women's running

The following 2 part video won't be interesting for everyone. But if you are interested in the mental aspects of winning a race, I think you'll like it.

I got a little misty-eyed as the extra-serifed gold M on maroon background appeared. I also saw someone I know who had a bad race that day.

Often, one can tell what the result will be by just looking at the runners: tenseness in the face, awkward motions, looking down, focusing on another runner, etc.

I enjoyed watching that too. It's so true what SteveQ said, you really can tell what the result will be just by looking at the runner.
