The Lion And The Gazelle



"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle awakens. He has only one thought on his mind: To be able to run faster than the fastest lion. If he cannot, then he will be eaten.

Every morning in Africa a lion awakens. He has only one thought on his mind: To be able to run faster than the slowest gazelle. If he cannot, he will die of hunger.

Whether you choose to be a gazelle or a lion is of no consequence. It is enough to know that with the rising of the sun, you must run. And you must run faster than you did yesterday or you will die.
This is the race of life."



This is an African Proverb that Larry uses in his email signature. If you take the time to think about it, this has meaning on many levels, especially for team voice.

Tonight was just a casual 4 miles on the old TM at Snap, thanks to the nice little April shower we have been enjoying today.

This proverb is why I cannot watch the animal channel or animal shows. If there is a zebra on camera, it's going to get eaten!
