I've learned that it's not a straight road to the top, and there are going to be setbacks along the way. You have to be patient, and you have to keep believing in what you're doing. And keep believing in yourself, no matter what is happening. And then eventually you'll get there. #athletics #athletes #coaching #chasing #conquer #determination #exercises #fit #fitness #fun #trackandfield #training #strive #roadtonationals2019 #tracknation #australia #flexibility #drills #grind #progress #nevergiveup #comeback #sprinting #hurdles #westtrack #thisisathletics #flotrack #TeamCatley

No difficulty can discourage, no obstacle dismay, no trouble dishearten the man who has acquired the art of being alive. Difficulties are but dares of fate, obstacles but hurdles to try his skill, troubles but bitter tonics to give him strength; and he rises higher and looms greater after each encounter with adversity. #athletics #athletes #coaching #chasing #conquer #determination #exercises #fit #fitness #fun #trackandfield #training #strive #roadtonationals2019 #tracknation #australia #flexibility #drills #grind #progress #nevergiveup #comeback #sprinting #hurdles #westtrack #thisisathletics #flotrack #TeamCatley
There is never just one thing that leads to success for anyone. I feel it always a combination of passion, dedication, hard work, and being in the right place at the right time. #athletics #athletes #coaching #chasing #conquer #determination #exercises #fit #fitness #fun #trackandfield #training #strive #roadtonationals2019 #tracknation #australia #flexibility #drills #grind #progress #nevergiveup #comeback #sprinting #hurdles #westtrack #thisisathletics #flotrack #TeamCatley

The 2018 Tasmanian Cross Country was a hit at the Rokeby Police Academy. What a diverse bunch 🙌👌 / #crosscountry #run #funrun #runner #athlete #tasmania #athletics #fit #runner #hobart #thisisathletics #10km #athstas
This race, this exact time last year was a huge deal for me. I had finally bounced back from my femur stress fracture from the beginning of the year, I had just come off winning the Sydney harbour 5km and every time I raced I was knocking off at least 20seconds at a time. This race was a 4km and I still ran 32 seconds faster over the same course as last year. I’m not a distance runner and this was distance to me. I was thinking gosh I have never been so fit, just imagine how this is going to translate into the upcoming track season. I remember so clearly during this race believing I was flying, I couldn’t believe how close I was to the other girls (actual distance runners..) I knew I had more to give… and then… on the slight downhill with about 800m to go, I felt the crack. I felt the crack at my 2ndmetatarsal, I know too well what this feeling is to know exactly what I’ve done… I had literally one second to decide what to do...”DO I STOP? I’ve just cracked a bone in my foot, this can’t be happening.. Again..” But, I looked up at my fellow competitor who was about 50m ahead of me and I thought NO.. I’m running for my team, I’m stubborn enough to push through this agonising pain, I think I can over take her, I might as well make my last run worth it. So… I sucked it up, I tried to hold my form the best I could and I went by that girl just before the line. The step I took over the line was the last one I could do. Turned out to be a complete fracture of the 2nd metatarsal – 6 weeks on crutches another 8 in the boot all hope of a healthy track season gone down the drain. I literally thought it was the end of the world. . . . Hind sight and perspective are funny things; a year on, I now look down at my belly and smile. This growing miracle inside me has already become my world and all those lessons running wise, I have learnt along the way, will hopefully make me a good mum. I already know it won’t be easy but I will be trying my best. 🤰🏽💕:) xxx . . Good luck to all those racing today! @hollycampbell22 @bethcroft97 @bankstownathletics

Congratulations Australian 🇦🇺 Record @josephdeng01 👏👏👏 . History in the making. Joe has broken the long standing Australian 800m record with a sensational 1.44.21 at the Herculis Diamond League meet in Monaco. The time which, was also a new Oceania record, took 0.19s off the record which has stood for nearly 50 years, first set by Ralph Doubell in 1968 at the Mexico City Olympic Games and then equalled by Alex Rowe in Monaco in 2014. . “It’s a great feeling. My target coming into the race wasn’t the record, it was just to run fast.” said Deng. Fantastic result for @jrinaldi800 and @pbol800 too! 💪💪 #ThisIsAthletics

Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak. #athletics #athletes #coaching #chasing #conquer #determination #exercises #fit #fitness #fun #trackandfield #training #strive #roadtonationals2019 #tracknation #australia #flexibility #drills #grind #progress #nevergiveup #comeback #sprinting #hurdles #westtrack #thisisathletics #flotrack #TeamCatley

BRINGING HOME THE SILVER MEDAL IN THE 4x400m RELAY, our girls say, “we went into that race with so much pride for our country”, a fact that shows in their stellar result. The team of Connolly, Jardine, Russell & Thomas clock the 2nd fastest ever time at a World U20s for Australia #ThisisAthletics #Tampere2018 @ellaconnollyyy @carleyy.thomas @jemima.russell

Congratulations @zane_branco 👊🏻💚💛💚💛 #Repost @qldathletics with @get_repost ・・・ @zane_branco finishes a close fifth in the 200m final, clocking 20.86 (-0.1) to finish just 0.07 off the medals.
