This was Haile Gebrselassie's take on his 2:06:20 marathon victory in Amsterdam yesterday (Sunday 16 October).
I know he want's to break the world record, and I think he can do it, but it illustrates a commonality he has with me and probably you too. We're never satisfied. There's no finish line. Goals met are merely an advertisement for bigger and brighter goals just a few miles down the road.
