We ended with some thoughts on finishing the F3 Brotastic Lent Challenge. We all need a challenge or a goal.  Something to measure ourselves against and strive for.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant or lofty.  The more attainable it is the more likely we are to stick to it.  We need that reason to keep doing what we are doing.  For fitness it could be something like being able to do a pull up or run a mile in 8 minutes or hold a handstand.  The goal gives us the focus and sharpens our efforts as well as gives us something to celebrate upon achieving it.
