As the champion stands in front of an adoring crowd we all wish to be in his shoes. Yet in the dark, lonely, grueling hours of training most of us would walk away. A moment in the spotlight is preceded by hours in the shadows. And that is part of the reason why we want to be a champion. To invest in a task fully. To suffer for a cause. To reap the benefits of our toil. These emotions well up at the sight of the victor. Countless people, however, go through the training and never win.
