GETTING GOOD

TODD BROWN Bike Life


NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP?  Implored Sir Winston.  So does Gladwell when he says it takes 10,000 hours to be great at something.

10,000 hours.

If I rode 10 hours a week 50 weeks a year, it would take 20 years to be a great bike rider.

But, it's not just riding.

I think the time spent working on my bike counts.

As does the time watching a race unfold.

Throw in the core work and stretching and yoga too.

It all adds up.

Every day, a little better.  A little closer.

After 20 years, I'm not great... but,
I'm pretty damn close
to the best I can be
and that's the point of any endeavor.
