“The best runners are a potent mix of energy and experience. They run smart, evening out the ups and downs, knowing that enthusiasm will carry them only so far. They may push the early pace, but only for tactical advantage. They know they’re going to have to back off at some point or they won’t be able to compete at the end.
You, like all runners, have a limited storehouse of energy. Learn to use what you have. Take advantage of early enthusiasm, to be sure. But know, too, that it won’t last forever, and adapt your strategy accordingly.”
— Kevin Nelson, from The Runner’s Book of Daily Inspiration
