Running a 10K Only Took Me 6 Weeks!

Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS# 2611 NMLS #208860

ten K 10,007.  Every point, every blog, every step has been worth it.  A huge thank you to the AR community for your help in reaching my first 10,000 points.  Yeah, it's about more than that, but as we all know, we are in a goal-oriented industry.  We are measured by our performance.  Closed loans.  Closed homes.  Sales.  How do we know if we are achieving what we have set out to do unless we write out our goals and then set deadlines in which to meet them?

I have made a lot of friends and developed some fantastic daily disciplines during my first 10K on Active Rain and I'm looking forward to much more of the same moving forward.  Blogging.  Connecting my brain and my keyboard.  Checking out what other people are doing and saying.  Establishing a dialogue.  So thank you for reading what I write and for being part of this wonderful community of professionals trying to be part of the solution.  The first few miles of a marathon are some of the hardest, but you can't finish unless you start.  Here's to the race and my fellow runners: I hope the next 10K is even better! (I also hope to improve my time.)

I was excited because I actually though you did a 10k race by training for only 6 weeks! Now that would be a good book to write! Congrats on the milestone!
