TTP2018 - Running Through the Finish Line

Running through the finish line:  To continue working on a task with maximum effort until after it is completed. 

Finish Line Quotes:

  • Being the first to cross the finish line makes you a winner in only one phase of life. It's what you do after you cross the line that really counts.    -Ralph Boston
  • But for each of us, isn't life about determining your own finish line?  - Diana Nyad
  • Embrace that finish matter how many other runners cross it ahead of you, it's all yours. -Nike
  • 'Dead last' is greater than 'did not finish' which beats 'did not start.' - unknown
  • As long as you are alive, there are no real finish lines... catch your breath, stay fueled, and keep going.    - Jeff Lebow
