What's Our Obligation?

Selling is exercise

Donovan Brazier broke the 34-year old American 800-meter record a few days ago at the World Championships in Doha.

Selling is exercise.

Rode to the Executive Overview with the top down

2018 indoor track season
Yesterday via Twitter…looking forward to Feb 3 Millrose Games…longest running indoor track meet in America.

 

Rode to Executive Overview with the top down.

That’s what i said to the early executive arrivals.

January 19 (yesterday) our school was on Winter Dress protocol. The College Prep school has a strict dress code and flexes it when morning temps are unsafe.

Rode my bicycle 3.5 miles to the 9am meeting.

Who braves unusual cold to ride a bike to an Executive Sales opportunity?

Can’t Wait to Get Started!

I’ll be heading out for a run soon. 

I’m hungry.

Not for breakfast, but for speed.

Life is hard and figuring it all out requires a great deal of effort. 

The past two days were “active rest”, meaning I didn’t do any type of workouts – no gym, no run, no track work.

Actually, I haven’t been on the track in 23 months, since July 2007.

In 2007, one week before Nationals and four weeks before Worlds, I had a sharp pain in my right foot.  It was plantar fasciitis.

Since I’m almost two months away from the Master’s Track & Field World Championships in Finland, I have made a commitment to be on the track tomorrow.

Two months of speed work ought to put me in a decent position to be the slowest of the fastest.

I hope your future goals are bigger than anything you’ve done in the past.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Slow Lane Sunday?

Slow Lane Sunday?

OK, so yesterday morning, as I’m jogging out of our neighborhood, a dear friend and long-time neighbor was walking her two dogs.

This neighbor attended our Son’s first Holy Communion on April 25.  She had dinner with us that night, along with my In-Laws from Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The day before I had just broken the news to my Mother-In-Law that I’d be going to Finland for the Master’s Track & Field World Championships.   She was surprised, of course, and also skeptical.

While celebrating our Son’s major accomplishment, we spoke of many things during that dinner.

Eventually, Finland came up.  I saw it as an opportunity to share a vision of why I am going.  My Son completely gets it.  My wife is right there too.  My In-Laws and my neighbor, not even close.

I had to tell you that so I can tell you this:

Yesterday my neighbor asked, “How’s your training coming?  Are you still going to Finland?”

Here’s the point.  Without even hesitating I replied, “Yes, even if I have to walk around the track!”

That had a haunting revelation, to hear myself say those words.

This is bigger than anything I can explain.  At a gut level, I’m so invested in it, that seeing it through, no matter what the obstacles, is the only course of action

This scares the heck out of me.  Talk about pressure and second-guessing yourself.

Than why?

It’s a platform, a metaphor, a challenge, a childhood dream reborn, a legacy, an impossible goal.

It’s all that.

My son will remember this long after I’m gone.  I hope he will find strength and determination, in my strength and determination.

On Friday a colleague and I were talking about exercise and I asked if he was still running.  He said no.  He explained that it’s too difficult for him to get motivated. 

I suggested his reason to exercise wasn’t compelling enough.  Maybe if he was doing it to show his kids that getting old doesn’t mean you have to get overweight and out of shape.

PS.  Make it a GREAT day. 

PSS.  I booked the flight to Helsinki last night.  🙂
