“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”—Winston Churchill
There’s nothing like those first few miles we traverse down the path of Irondom. We set lifting PRs by the week, barely require 24 hours to fully recover, and on those rare occasions when we need to be motivated, we need only measure our arms—for they’re an inch bigger than they were the week before. But keep waking up . . .
When you’ve seen enough winters, undergone enough surgeries and ceased buying training journals because the data they contain merely mocks you; then and only then will you relate to the words of the "British Bulldog"—who also happened to say, "Never, never, never, never give up!"
