Steal A March

Gain an advantage. This term arose from the days when armies walked everywhere, and the first one to a strategically sound location (a hilltop, riverside, etc) would be the one to win. Generals would sabotage their enemies traveling to get that advantage, or rob their opponent of a days travel, or "Steal a March"
