He noted the terrain of the Boston Marathon, where the most difficult part is in the second half. “It’s when you get to the point when your body’s exhausted that the race turns uphill,” he said. “Who has the patience to keep on keeping on? It’s not how many times you fall, it’s how many times you get up.”
