You were not meant for failure; get up and win that race! Winning is to rise each time you fall.
Are you too far behind to hope to win? You could still win you know; as long as the race is still on. It does not matter whom the audience is cheering, you could get the greatest cheer when you cross the line; when you finish the race.
The world will cheer you if you do not give up; even if you are not the number one!
