You are on a rowboat in the middle of a large, perfectly circular lake. On the perimeter of the lake is a monster who wants to eat you, but fortunately, he can’t swim. He can run (along the perimeter) exactly 4x as fast as you can row, and he will always run towards the closest bit of shore to your boat. If two paths take him to this location equally quickly, he will arbitrarily choose one. If you can touch shore even for a second without the monster already being upon you, you can escape. The monster can reverse direction instantaneously and you can turn your boat instantaneously. Suggest a strategy that will allow you to escape, and prove that it works.
