mind vs. body

Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. When you were younger the mind could make you dance all night, and the body was never tired...You've always got to make the mind take over and keep going.
--George S. Patton (1885-1945) U.S. Army General and 1912 Olympian

This past weekend, ETSU played host to the Niswonger Invitational and to over 1,400 athletes from 105 top collegiate, post collegiate, and professional athletic teams. And, as if that wasn't enough activity for the Memorial Center, there was a second event taking place concurrently there with over 1,000 high school students competing in the KTC High School Indoor Track Classic.
