Thanks to the cloud platform and freedom of information, this data helps to create a global team that is developing new and better ways to train. Organizations now have the ability to run machine-learning technologies to analyze data and address challenges.

Much like athletic innovators, these machines use trial and error to create algorithms that enable them to perform their assigned duties, providing intelligent enterprises with the information they need to complete their own journeys.

Crossing the finish line

Taking that first step is, of course, just the beginning of the marathon. In my case, I started to get tired, and my body became weak. The cadence I’d been repeating in my head began to fade at about mile 3, and breathing became significantly harder.

That’s when I noticed a group of people running near me, singing a cadence as they ran. As I started to recite the cadence myself, I was able to catch my breath a bit and keep pace with the group. I didn’t learn until after the marathon that the act of singing forces you to breathe while you’re running, and the pack mentality prevents you from failing.

This information was readily available — all I had to do was accept it. That is what made it possible for me to finish the marathon. Even if I, or anyone else in the group, stopped singing, the song would never stop. No single person could stop or change the cadence.
