How to be a Strong Finisher

It’s important to start, but success is always found in the finish.

You’ve heard the expression “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” That is true, but there are approximately 2,154,999 more steps to go (seriously, I did the research…it’s more if you are shorter, less if you are taller). And those steps are just as meaningful.


How to Reach the Finish Line Strong

With that in mind, I asked Dan Erickson to share with us how to be a finisher.

Dan teaches public speaking, mass media, and feature writing courses at a college in the Pacific Northwest.  He blogs about writing and writing as a form of therapy at He writes songs, poetry and has written two books, A Train Called Forgiveness and At the Crossing of Justice and Mercy. He’s also an on-again/off-again runner like myself.
