If you are running local races on a consistent basis, you will start to see the same runners at all of them. There is that one particular guy or girl who always seem to finish in front of you by just a little bit. Make that person your rabbit.
Next race, chase them down, or better yet, never let them get in front of you. Use that as your drive to run faster.
Once you have caught the rabbit, pick a new one.
You may not know it, but chances are you are someone else’s rabbit.
