Good news for men who run: You're probably closer to following Usain Bolt's pregame routine than you might think. Before races, the world's fastest man calms his nerves by talking about fast cars, women, and music. He wants to focus on things he likes rather than on the competition at hand, because he doesn't need to have his brain in the race to win it. His physical gifts tend to win the day as long as he keeps psychology out of it.
