Updated: Jan 22, 2021

Below is the transcript from the "Sunday Startup" episode this week on youtube. Aired yesterday (and every sunday).



(0:00:03.280,0:00:09.120) Have you ever wondered why people kept saying life is not a sprint it's a marathon. What is up.


(0:00:09.120,0:00:15.920) I'm Jon Scharinger your resident change

operative and this is the sunday startup.


(0:00:32.960,0:00:40.800) Man back when i was in high school i loved doing sprints i was actually in the 110 and 200 meter.


(0:00:40.800,0:00:48.240) Hurdles. My senior year i was in a lot of the

relays actually hurt my foot so i wasn't able to


(0:00:48.240,0:00:53.280) Do a lot of the different sprints and hurdles and relays that were out there in the beginning of the


(0:00:53.280,0:00:59.920) Year so i was actually in the end of the year when i when i did. My senior year but i love sprints


(0:00:59.920,0:01:04.560) Just the heart pounding adventure

of it. Especially when we did the


(0:01:04.560,0:01:11.360) Relays now my senior year we did phenomenal.

We took state and my four by two hundred meter


(0:01:11.360,0:01:17.120) Relay team which i started out in took first

place, and not only did we take first place


(0:01:17.120,0:01:19.840) We broke a 13-year record. So

we're pretty proud of that,


(0:01:21.200,0:01:27.200) But sprints they're over way too quick right. You know especially for the 4x200 i only ran one leg


(0:01:27.200,0:01:32.240) Of that. wasn't running the whole sprint

myself you've got some relays out there


(0:01:32.240,0:01:37.440) That you're running 400 meters i only ran two.

You have some races you're running 400 meters,


(0:01:38.720,0:01:44.560) But then you look at a at a marathon

and that can last for miles, miles.


(0:01:45.920,0:01:50.960) That right there is the difference between people saying life is not a sprint life is a marathon.


(0:01:51.760,0:01:58.160) Because life can go on for a very long time

right. A sprint again is over way too quickly.


(0:01:59.360,0:02:07.840) Life for as much as we know isn't over

that quickly or at least we hope not.


(0:02:08.560,0:02:12.800) See Simon Sinek said it best when he

brought out his book the infinite game.


(0:02:14.000,0:02:20.960) There's finite and there's infinite finite you

can look at it as more of like a basketball game.
