HOW TO FINISH STRONG

HOW TO FINISH STRONG

I ASKED MY DYING FRIEND IF HE HAD ANY LAST WORDS TODAY.  He's 93, and has been a dad to me for nearly 50 years.  Much of that time he was the best athlete in my life, a natural who might have gone pro...

... instead, he chose to serve his adopted country.

He was quiet.

I don't have anything to say.

That's a first.

Reverential silence.  A bite of donut, a sip of coffee.

Ok, remember to treat yourself well.  You never know when He's going to take you.

I like that.  Thank you.

It pretty sums up his approach to everything.  He's always treated himself well, and I think that's part of the key to the vigorous and productive life he has led up until recently...

... it's also the key to finishing anything strong.

So many times during those final miles we (me for sure) forget to drink and eat.  Or, we just don't want to.  We're exhausted, it doesn't sound good...

... yet, if we'd just treat ourselves well by eating and drinking we'd finish much stronger.

But, it's not just there during the race.

It's in the prep, the training, the recovery, the equipment, the coaching, the reading, etc.  All that adds up to getting us in the best shape of our lives...

... so we can kick arse in everything we do.

The PEDALposse mantra begins with, I determine my results on and off the bike.

My friend Eric treated himself well today when he purchased my favorite lube.

I can't say enough about how well this lube performs and how long it lasts.

Truly amazing.
