Classic example: Steve Prefontaine. Pre came out too quickly twice in the same race in the ’72Olympics; both times, he was chased down. By the home stretch, Pre had nothing left and fadedout of the medals to fourth. That  home the lesson: nobody gives up thepursuit position if they don’t have to. Not unless you’re foolish, or reckless—or Garry Kasparov with her, he would sanction

In the 1990 World Chess Championship, Kasparov made a horrible mistake and lost his queenright at the start of a decisive game. Chess grand masters around the world let out a pained groan;the bad boy of the chessboard was now road kill (a less-gracious observer for The New YorkTimes visibly sneered). Except it wasn’t a mistake; Kasparov had deliberately sacrificed his mostpowerful piece in exchange for an even more powerful psychological advantage. He was deadliestwhen swashbuckling, when he was chased into a corner and had to slash, scramble, and improvisehis way out. Anatoly Karpov, his by-the-book opponent, was too conservative to pressureKasparov early in the game, so Kasparov put the pressure on himself with a Queen’s Gambit—andwon.

The lion can lose and come back to hunt another day, but the antelope gets only onemistake. To defeat the Tarahumara, Ann knew she needed more than willpower: she needed fear.
