This video elicited different reactions and interpretations of lessons that could be gleaned from the experience–from sport science’s perspective (runner’s fault for not clearing the space) to religious one (faith made her win).
(Sorry cannot embed the video here so just click this to view it.)
But what struck me were these comments:
It’s about doing and being your best, not about getting ahead (or a 4.0).
It’s about excellence, not about winning.
It’s about finishing, doing what must be done, not about beating the rest.
That’s what life is all about…on or off the mat.
