"In order to do well I know that I need to work hard."

The Importance of giving yourself every opportunity for success.

Devon Allen was able to do what only a few have ever done—win at the highest level in two sports at the same time. While on a football scholarship at the University of Oregon, Devon also did the rare double and competed for the track and field program. While having to overcome injuries, his fluctuating weight, and the pressures of competing on two elite programs, he was able to find success in both.

In this episode, Nick and Devon discuss having to decide between football and track, what it was like winning the Olympic Trials on his home track, and how Devon approaches his goal setting to reach his ultimate dream.

Find out what motivates this talented athlete who is only 23 on episode 4 of the Run The day Podcast.
