Not the fastest

  • Not the fastest.
  • Not the brightest.
  • Not the strongest.
  • Not the biggest.
  • Not the richest.

Just more consistent than most.

That was a musing from my last run as I overtook the guy who sprinted past me in the penultimate leg of my run.

He stopped. I didn’t. I won.

(Yeah, I know he wasn’t racing me. But I was racing him. Still counts.)

Made me think: in life, you don’t necessarily need to be the most-est of anything, but being consistent can get you pretty darn far.

Reminds me of something I wrote a few year ago on (virtual) rally racing. You can win nary a single race, and still win the championship. Brilliant.
