Getting There is What Counts


Monday, July 15, 2013

I've been going to the gym at 5:00 AM for the past three weeks. I have always believed that only serious people drag themselves out of bed at that hour to exercise. No social hour, no visiting while the line backs up to use a piece of equipment.........

I always check in on Facebook and this morning my nephew Jack who is a senior in college responded by saying,

" And here I am thinking getting to the gym at 6 was an accomplishment... Way to go!"

My response to him was " LOL Jack getting to the gym any time of day is an accomplishment!"

It's all about getting there!

    My co-workers are impressed that I work out before coming to the office every day. The gym is RIGHT NEXT DOOR to the office and we all get an amazing low rate. It couldn't be more convenient.

Yes, it's all about getting there!

    A good point (as always!), John, but I'm with your nephew on this one:

5am

at the gym?!!

Don't let anyone ever tell you you lack commitment! You're amazing!

(and there was I wondering how I can leave the house at 6.35 tomorrow to get to a breakfast meeting at church! As I struggle to leave my duvet (do you call them that in the US?) I'll think of you and be inspired.

    You're a better man than I. Pool time is 12:30 for me. But you're right - getting there is what counts.
