My high school cross-country coach once told me that the most underappreciated athletic skill was the ability to finesse your way through injury. That really changed my notion of what exactly ‘skill’ is.

The 05 August 2013 episode of Fresh Air suggests several more non-traditional definitions, as well. One of the most interesting is “the ability to respond to training.” Anyway, I thought the piece would be of interest to some members of the forum.
