Marathon? Series Of Sprints?

RacePeople like to say that life is like a marathon. We’re in for the long haul, so space yourself out, don’t get burned out! Others say that’s not true at all, that life is really a series of sprints. Rest at the right times, flat out when appropriate. What’s your view?

I think life is like a campaign. Times of slow preparation. Frenzied preparation. Waiting. Slow movement. Quick movement. Wild melees. Rest. Slow movement. And so on. As is often the case, truth lies somewhere in between.

So, don’t worry about it. Two-thirds throttle, and be ready for bursts of action. Enjoy the journey!
