The Champion
“The average runner sprints until the breath in him is gone:
But the champion has the iron will that makes him carry on.
For rest, the average runner begs when limp his muscles grow
But the champion runs on leaden legs, his spirit makes him go.
The average man’s complacent when he does his best to score,
But the champion does his best and then he does a little more.
