What is the significance of this cartoon with our running journey?
From @Anand Dasgupta
What I see here is the second and third pictures are interchanged . Real “wow” is the second picture and not the third. The general population always looks/wants the last picture, something like a Sub 2 HM or a Sub 3 FM and says “Wow”, forgetting what went to do it. So the real “wow” is the weeks of hard work and training - CP runs, speeds runs and what not, that made the Sub 2 or Sub 3 possible….just like the second picture showing the hard work in putting single bricks together … !!!!
From Dimple M
Success is a process ! Principle of ‘aggregate marginal gains’, is the idea that if you improve by just 1% consistently, those small gains will add up to remarkable improvement. In running context, every run or strength training however mundane and boring it might seem, that 1% given consistently every day leads to great marginal benefits in terms of performance and getting stronger both mentally and physically.
From @Rohini Kunchamwar
There is some level of excitement when we start something new.. It fades gradually and feels meaningless at one point .. however, that small consistent effort overtime builds into much more significant and meaningful thing.. which we can be super proud of. So keep at it. Do not give up. My rule of thumb is, when in doubt always think about why we started something and the clarity comes back 😇

Believe in Slow and Steady Wins the Race It starts with One minuscule win , each small win helps in self belief which makes you stronger physically mentally and emotionally . I rather be a Calm Cool Tortoise by taking my own sweet time , enjoying the journey , without over thinking , one mission at a time over a Hyper , Superspeed , Exhausting and Confused Rabbit !
Have to focus on just laying a brick today. If we look at the big building, then it might seem impossible task. But if we just focus on today then eventually we can build a skyscraper one brick at a time.......not sure if any of u have read will smith's book - he gives the example of his childhood of building a wall.
"You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t start by saying, ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid.’ If you do that every single day, soon you will have a wall".....from Will Smith's autobiography
