This post was originally part of Episode 325 released in October of 2016 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.
Starting too fast during a race is something that can happen to even the most seasoned runner if he or she is not careful.
Shoot, it happens to me even when I’m trying to be careful more often than I’d like to admit.
Surely I’m not the only one guilty of starting a race too fast and then blowing up before the finish, am I?
