To probably most people, being in the lead is a great thing. Of course. No doubt about that. The morale boost that it provides and also the energy that comes with it to see it through certainly help. Having said that, when most of the attention is focused on the one who is leading, few take note of the ones who aren’t. And that is usually where the surprise happens. In any race, there is always the ‘underdog’, the one who everyone has written off or simply not care about. And the most determined underdog would be the one who is second place. So near but not quite there yet. You better believe that there will be nothing that the one who is currently in second place would not do.
