Chase recap 6.29.10

The Chase Corporate challenge results are up. Somehow I missed the video recorders in the crowd, or else I would have given the "Hi MOM!" shout out, but I still found a part in my .01 seconds of recording. As for the race, 29:45 for the 3.5 miles through downtown Boston, which is nearly 6 minutes off my PR for the course. I think I have my first 2011 goal. Find those six minutes and reclaim the fastest runner from JPM. Maybe if I didn't read off every jersey slogan from the other runners my time would have been better, but it wouldn't have been as much fun.

John Wooden 99 6.8.10

Another childhood legend passed away. It was a decent tribute on Sunday for the legend in college basketball. He was one of many people who are here able to impart valuable lessons through sport even if you have never met them. I will miss John Wooden, and stop to think that few current college coaches in this day and age will ever compare. Maybe Mike Krzyzewski and a few others at smaller schools out of the spotlight.

Some favorites:

Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. Help others. Drink deeply from good books. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

You canít let praise or criticism get to you. Itís a weakness to get caught up in either one.

If youíre not making mistakes, then youíre not doing anything. Iím positive that a doer makes mistakes.

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

If you donít have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Success is the peace of mind that is a direct result of doing your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

Be quick but don't hurry. When you hurry you're more apt to make mistakes. But you have to be quick. If you're not quick you can't get things done. Those that hurry, in so doing, will get off balance. And balance is perhaps the second most important word we have. It has to be physical, mental and moral balance in everything.

Talent is God-given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.

It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.

Consider the rights of others before your own feelings and the feelings of others before your own rights.

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

I'd rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent.

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.

You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.

Winning takes talent; to repeat takes character.
