The Agony of Almost

March 2, 2020

I love the story of Molly Seidel running her first marathon and finishing second to earn a spot on the U.S. women’s team for the Olympics. “What is happening?”

But I also love this story in the NY Times on finishing fourth (NYTimes.com, 3.1.20).

It is better to have competed at the highest level and come in a close second – or in this case fourth, or in the case for most of us somewhere near the bottom.
