The Great Race

Do you how a sprinter trains for a race?  They sprint!  They focus on getting to their goal - the finish line - as quickly as possible.  They use all their physical and mental resources to achieve their goal as quickly as possible.   If you have watched top-level sprinters on television, you can see the intensity in their faces.  They are hell-bent on staying one stride ahead of whoever is next to them.  Their muscles flex, veins pump with blood, and eyes are fixed ahead.  They do not let up for a second.   Tiny mistakes have giant consequences in a sprint race - there is very little margin for error.  What about running a marathon?
