We were graced with quite a flattering compliment the other day from a distant member of the ‘Nation.’ If she came to class, she might go unrecognized by most students, yet her religious following of the website and Facebook Fan Page is unmatched over the last 8 months or so. Here’s what the comment said:
“Looking through some old posts for inspiration with the new challenge I am creating….obsticle race #4. 13 miles (2 miles longer than the Tough Mudder). It’s amazing the tools I’ve gained from simply being a fan of FFOTB and following their stories. You guys ROCK!”
What’s funny is that I get an email notification when folks comment on the website. This comment was on a blog post from months ago, so it sparked my interest. Not only has this FFOTB advocate utilized the website on a daily basis for updates, but she uses pasts posts as a resource!
Just days prior, the topic of our website was on my mind quite a bit. Naturally, I am biased, but I came to realize that the impact this blog can have. What I keep thinking about is… what would be available to someone if he/she read the post every single day? I don’t mean glancing at the idea of each post. I don’t mean checking to see the workout each day. I mean soaking in the message each day.
This website isn’t yet two years old, but we pour our heart and soul into this thing and we’ve covered a ton. If one read our message each day, he/she would have insight into training, nutrition, goal setting, and intangible lifestyle/perspective gains that, in my opinion, could be the beginning of new lasting performance, nutritional changes, relationship progress, or even career improvements.
I realize the egotist in me is coming out when I say this, but none of us realize what we have right in front of us with FFOTB.com. Don’t let it do to waste. Soak it in.
