our lives with passion. Passion is that element that often separates one racer from another, between getting or not getting the prize. One of the things we love to see in an athletic contest is someone who gives it all in order to go a split second faster, or jump a fraction of an inch higher. We seem to intuitively know that giving our all is the right and best way to live and we admire someone who does it, and does it well. Many a race has been lost by pulling up too soon. Every good coach knows to impress upon his athletes the importance of running hard through the tape before slowing down. They push this just as hard in practice races as they do the actual race.
