I read somewhere that when the human body tends to run long distance, it tends to slow down later on no matter what your pace is for the first lap or two. That means starting off too slow will result in you compensating and losing a lot of speed. A bad start like that could ruin any athlete’s running time. If you start with a really good pace, that pace will deteriorate as you run more distance without stopping, but you’ll still get a better time than if you had a bad start. Your start sets the standards for your business, and it is important to have a strong start so that in the long run, everyone marvels at what you have accomplished in a short amount of time.
