If I if you don't know what it's like to have to run 15100 analyst you've been there yet so -- been there I would like I wanna hear you put it into words for everybody that's watching with. Actually there is a big difference like there's that it huge respect for which he did because actor. You know how most of the Kaplan is like definitely physically. Training but the mental thing teaching and you key to the line -- fifteen or being happy. Yeah you're like believe that you don't care about records or anything there's like. Get this thing -- -- go out you can be your best effort but at the same time just like. Have the gold like to you that this be over him or anything so that's. It it's it's tough to Muster the street -- you definitely can get to run under run. For the gold it is totally different right yeah no I I totally did. We were talking about.

It was actually special -- it's like so much different and calling them on the phone and having him watch it or something thing I got the -- this definitely. They were there that can experience all the emotions and he went through the ups and downs with me in the best thing was going to that victory lap and actually being physically hug it and have been night. You feel the -- -- few tears and it just be able to actually see their faces what what did you run -- you.
