to win a race

by Tellman Knudson

It’s been years since I won
a race.

I’ve forgotten what it feels like.

I’m talking about a foot race.

A serious 5k (3.1 miles) or a half-marathon,
even a full Marathon…

In High School I was blessed.

Even though I was born with twisted

Into the most non-athletic family you
can imagine…

I SOMEHOW managed to become one of the
fastest Cross-Country runners in the
good ol’ state of New Hampshire…

And It took me 2 years of insane training,
but by the end of my Sophmore Year of High
School I was winning races left and right…




I woke up from a dream at 5:52 am
this morning…

…And in that dream I had just
won a 5k race…

And I re-lived what it felt like.

More energy in my body than I have
felt in years.

The rush of adrenaline as I crossed
the finish line…

And blew Runner #2 out of the water!…

I’ve never run for the medals…

Or for the trophies…

I run because I love to run

and I LOVE to run fast…

But DAMMIT – It’s been a long time
since I ran that fast.

Isn’t it time that you and I put our heads
together and put a little more juice
into what we’re doing?

Isn’t it time to run-faster?…

How are YOU going to run faster?

I’m going to Hypnotize more people.

In fact, we recently decided on our
BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal)
for our new company –

The New Hypnotists

We’re going to Hypnotize 1 Billion
(not a type-o) people in the next
10 years.

I’d be honored to count you as
one of us.

You are not alone.


You have Nothing To Fear anymore
I know you can do it.
