The Journey Day 7 12.18.19

Here we are boys and girls, Day 7. Charge!

GRATITUDE.
I’m grateful to make it to day 4 of the 75Hard Challenge. It feels like running up hill all the way…. but in a good way.

NUGGETS. 
Admit where you are today and work today toward where you want to be tomorrow.

I’m already doing 1.7 miles more in a bike workout than when I started. I realize that those gains are finite, but I’ve got to wonder where else in my life can I dig deep within me and get a little bit more production?

  6. I am the best man, father, and grandfather I can be.
  7. I am one bad-ass motherfucker.
