To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift.
Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.
If he's having a good day and running the right race, nobody can beat Frank Shorter at 10,000 meters... nobody except me.
Something inside of me just said 'Hey, wait a minute, I want to beat him,' and I just took off.
