It was the morning of the New York marathon. I was extremely worried because if I didn’t win this race I would have to give my running nemesis €30,000 but if I won he would also have to give me € 30,000.
At the starting line, we both lined up next to each other and waited for the race to start. When it finally did start my nemesis took off at the speed of sound. Instead of doing that, I took the start nice and slow and tried to preserve my energy for the end. When we finally reached the last leg of the race we were neck and neck.
I thought about pushing him over but would this really be the right thing to do I thought to myself.
