Last month we brought you three motivational tips straight from Chief Sales & Marketing Officer and ViSalus Co-Founder Blake Mallen as he put in final preparations for the June Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon & ½ Marathon in San Diego to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
A crowd of over 30,000 turned out to cheer on runners and rock out to alternative and classic rock, punk, funk and blues each mile of the course. Runners raced to support finding cures for leukemia and promoting access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Blake clocked in at 02:02:20 for the 13.1-mile half marathon. If you thought that was impressive, check out his race pace here on the right. ⇒
He started at a 10:17-minute mile, increased his speed and dropped down to a 09:54-minute mile, then 09:17 and finished strong at a 07:55-minute mile with an average pace of 09:21 minutes/mile.
“They say it’s not how you start, but how you finish that matters most,” says Blake.
So much for ‘slow and steady wins the race.’
Vi Promters also know a thing or two about crossing the success threshold. While Promoters come from a range of backgrounds, skill sets and starts, they tend to share a common thread—the tenacity to set big goals and finish strong. Take Vi Model Jaquies Jackson, for example. He worked his way to millionaire status from the ground up, never taking his eyes off the proverbial finish line.
Like with any 90-Day Challenge goal, the last stretch can feel like the longest and hardest. But it’s that final mile that defines your endurance and your character. Wherever you may be on your Challenge—or if you’re looking for the right moment to start, take the next step now. There’s no better time than the present to chip away at your Challenge goal and action is better than perfection after all.
