Race On

remember, as you face another day,
events to come can turn out either way -
sometimes better than you dare to hope
unless they're worse, of course, then free the rope -
let's cut ourselves some slack, yes, learn to wait -
the winner can be last to leave the gate

    1. Yes, reminds me of these Sam Beckett quotes on the subject of failure: “… you must go on. I can’t go on. I’ll go on” – “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”


  1. It helps to have your own measuring stick as well, Dave. I have a friend who had a women’s consistently top cross country running team for years and years. Her secret: She always urged her runners to run against beating their own times as opposed to someone else’s and made a big deal out of it when they did.
