The Extra Mile

“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” Roger Staubach.

That’s some good stuff. The extra mile. 110%. Outwork your opponent, your challenge. Given equal talent and opportunity, victory goes to the one who outworks the competition. The extra mile.

Every step of the extra mile is “the road less taken.”

Clan bingo is in the process of starting another business. Lil’bingo and The Heir are opening a CrossFit Affiliate, Comet CrossFit. Very exciting, but hard work. Coach told Lil’bingo “it’s fun, and it’s easy,” but I think the boys are discovering that it’s only easy BECAUSE it’s fun. Trust me…if it’s worth it, it’s ALWAYS hard, and it’s not always fun.

But that’s part of the point, isn’t it? Think about the worthwhile things in your life. Your most important relationship. Raising a family. Your life’s work. Fitness. They may all be really good and really happy things, but part of the reason they might be like that is the hard work you’ve put into them. Right?

Every step of the “extra mile” is worth it.
