Day 30: Finish Line Ahead..Speed Up!

dont slow downTime for the final sprint! The finish line is right there…you can reach out and touch it. Don’t slow down…speed up and finish strong!

Finishing strong today means giving it a little more than you think you have left…pushing a little harder than you’ve done all month…even though you are tired, sore, and just ready for it to be over.

Find that final gear, dial in…and cross the finish line with your hands high!
