Quote of the Week: Antelope or Lion

October 30, 2011

Later this week, the Illinois High School Association will host its Cross Country State Finals in Peoria, IL. In honor of all of the student-athletes competing this weekend I bring you this quote. They have worked hard all fall and most of them all summer long to get to this point. A shout-out to the Freeburg Midgets! Both the boys and the girls’ teams will be competing in Peoria. The girls’ won the Sectional Championship yesterday at SIU-Edwardsville while the boys took 4th place.

“Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or an antelope – when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” – African Proverb
