You may have heard marathon runners say that the race is won, or lost, in the last stretch. One coach was overheard telling her team that you must run the first 20 miles with 50% of your energy and save the last 50% for those last six miles. She understood the important lesson of finishing strong. Why is it though that many people slow down, change focus, or give up entirely, in the final stretch? Whether it’s following through on a yearly savings plan, maintaining better eating habits, or closing out an important project, the original energy, drive or resolve begins to fizzle. In our new series, we’ll look at what it takes to finish strong – in every area of your life. Join us at 10:30 a.m for our church service in downtown Toronto at Sidney Smith Hall, 100 St George street.
