I've been involved in numerous PCRG/Gold Coast Airport Marathon campaigns. The day itself is always exciting given it's the "finale". The day PCRG members call on their banked energy, both physical and psychological. I've often found myself alone (reflecting) in the marquee after everyone has left, savouring the mornings memories.
What I do find equally rewarding is the final month or so prior. Rather than take this gradual build of excitement for granted I believe we should also savour these final weeks and realise that being motivated by a challenge is something to be proud of: "WE'RE LIVING"! The Beatles sang about how "Money can't buy me love", well: Money can't buy the desire to achieve your goal at the coast either, but the priceless fire in your belly will. Relish in the fact you've set yourself a goal and stay true over the next 5.5 weeks.
IT'S TIME TO LOCK IN YOUR EVENT
PCRG/Gold Coast 2011 Team Entry will close this Friday
Yes it will soon be colder in the mornings and daylight will take longer to appear. Are you going to let life pass you by and stay in your comfy bed OR are you going to join your friends at PCRG? It will be your choice and the consequence of this choice will either power you OR bug you.
NO BUGS! I'll be seeing YOU again this week!
