Slow and sleady wins the race...

That expression doesn't make much sense.  I suppose it lacks specificity.  If the race is a sprint, then slow and steady won't do you much good.  The only time Usain Bolt uses the word "slow" is to describe his opponents.  Hell, if it's an elite-level ultra-endurance effort (i.e. 100+ miles), slow doesn't punch a ticket to the podium, especially when the best of the world are competing beside you.  Obviously, no one sprints an ultra, but you have to be steady and maintain a good enough clip to be the best, right?
