A dedicated ultra-runner, Jaime draws on the many parallels between long distance running and being a trial attorney. His sage advice includes:
- Train, Train, Train, Practice, Practice, Practice – work hard and love the process.
- Eat well, drink less alcohol, sleep well, and get up early.
- Just get started – you will find your flow and help along the way. Say thanks and help others along the way too.
- Keep going. Persistence, perseverance, relentless forward progress – you will stun yourself with what you are actually capable of.
- It doesn’t matter where you finish (or sometimes if you finish) – as long as you can look yourself in the eye and know you did your best.
Unsurprisingly, his favorite quote comes from the Chinese Proverb, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
