Believing in this second sense is a bottom-up phenomenon. Through the practice of running, the body learns what it can do. This learning is experienced as a warm feeling of self-efficacy as a runner embarks upon a performance in pursuit of a particular goal consonant with the body’s selfknowledge. In rare, special moments, training goes so well that a runner’s brain-based performance calculation mechanism (with the help of experiential feedback in the form of speed and distance, or performance, information gathered in key workouts) comes to believe that the runner is capable of doing things he has never done before. Dathan Ritzenhein experienced one such moment in his preparation for the two track races he ran in the summer of 2009the World Championships 10,000 m (where he finished sixth in a personal-best time of 27:22.28) and the 5,000 m in Zurich, where he set his American record. I knew that I was doing things I hadn’t done before, he said of the workouts he completed at a Nike Oregon Project training camp in the Swiss Alps that summer. I was doing workouts that I could not have replicated when I was at my best before. That gave me confidence.
