Running the gauntlet

and running a marathon

are the same

–and totally different–


the first is defined by



to do your best,

the second by



to best you,


the one you swing your arms

–you’re fit!

the other

you swing your arms

–in fists!


the marathon

quickens your

heart beat

–causing you to sweat,

and the gauntlet

quickens your

beat heart


your cause.


So, a marathon and the gauntlet

are the same…


like surveillance versus howja do…


but totally different.
