    Sounds like you need a lucky charm. This mojo that you have mislayed, it seems, did you always win races with it. I would just pray that God gives you the strength to do well without it. I thought at first you wanted the definition of mojo. I guess I didn't understand. But here it is.mojo is made up of both happiness and meaning. Although when you look it up, there seems to be an association with it being African, and casting spells from an amulet, or having power.,what Marshall Goldsmith, one of America's top executive coaches and bestselling business authors, wants you to bring into your professional and personal life. As defined in his latest book Mojo: How to Get It, How to Keep It, and How to Get It Back If You Lose It, "Mojo is that positive spirit toward what you are doing now that starts on the inside and radiates to the outside."
In other words, mojo is made up of both happiness and meaning. "One without the other just does not seem to work," says Goldsmith.
A longtime executive educator, ranked in the world's top-15 most influential business thinkers by Forbes and The (London) Times, Goldsmith is basing his conclusions on research into thousands of people's personal and professional experiences with happiness and meaning.
"Decisions aren't made on the basis of logic. They're made based on human emotions." —Marshall Goldsmith
"No one can define happiness for you but you, and no one can define meaning for you but you," Goldsmith says. Goldsmith divides mojo into four parts: identity, achievement, reputation, and acceptance. While his study did not examine the importance of one element over another, he does know that all areas must be addressed to achieve optimum mojo scores. That's not always easy, since tensions can flare among the elements.

"[Mojo] is a different way to look at achievement," he adds. "Historically, people have looked at achievement as just half of that model—the professional side or 'What am I bringing to this activity?' … But in the new world of work, where work is such an important part of people's lives, it's important to look not just at what you're bringing to it, but what it's bringing to you."

    Trust in your training. The taper is a real powerful tool. Do not underestimate the strength of less training (is more) just before your race. I completely know what you are going through.

  Go about your business and like a cat, comes home when it's ready. A little self love can help too. Take a deep breath and do something for yourself that you find restorative. Good Luck! There are many of us who look up to those of you who can run.

    Gut through this week in training, and you may find your Mojo coming back during the taper. Anyway, I hope you do.
