10K Challenge – Are You In?
Some of you may have read about the idea that to achieve mastery at something you need to do it for 10,000 hours. Zen Habits, which is one of my favorite blogs, recently posted a blog about The Only Way to Become Amazingly Great at Something, which also emphasizes the idea that to become good at something you need to do it over and over again.
Which brings me to the question…how do you feel about running? Do you love running and want to keep getting better and faster? Do you hate running and find it frustrating? In either case, the only way to improve is to KEEP RUNNING. Nobody gets better at anything by NOT doing it. Every great athlete at one point was the new guy, learning, fumbling and failing just like the rest of us. People who have achieved “mastery” don’t ever stop the work, though. They exercise their “show up, don’t quit” muscle over and over. A great way to make the “work” interesting is to put some skin in the game, so to speak, and to do it with a group of like-minded people.
Which leads me to…the CFLA 10K Challenge. Are you in?? Sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or signing up on the bulletin board at the gym.
