Are You a Sprinter or a Marathon Runner?

I think your approach to life is similar to your approach to running.  So are you a sprinter or a marathon runner? That is the question I am always thinking about. Do I want to play the short game, or the long game? Should I make a plan, or just go for it?
The sprinter takes their position and 7 seconds later, it's over. They run as fast as they can and for the most part, it's all physical. You don't even have time to think and "poof", race over. 
The marathon runner runs a long race with lots of strategy and planning needed. Their task is as mental as it is physical. They need to think when to speed up, when to rest a bit, when to go full force...they must run their plan and plan their run, they must use their mind as much as any other muscle with the marathon run!
In order to be great, I have always thought the goal isn't to get married, get rich, and be successful, but to stay married, stay rich, stay successful, for a long period of time. That is what it takes to be extraordinary.
I've always put a lot of stock in the idea that "Consistency over time is what equals credibility, and usually greatness as well!", that's what it's all about.
So, how are you approaching your life? Are you sprinting or are you looking at things like a marathon runner?
