Learning From the Greats — Mark Twain?

“Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.” 

Mark Twain

As far as I know, Mark Twain was not a runner. But he was a smart man. To be great at running you have to be disciplined. There are a lot of runners each year who have the ABILITY to be GREAT…but they don’t really reach that GREATNESS.

For those who do reach GREATNESS…typically they are annoyingly great examples.

What do we really learn from the greats? We learn from their example.
