Life lessons learned from watching the Tour de France

Watching the Tour de France has been an annual event for me for as long as I can remember. I enjoy seeing the action of the race as well as the sites of France along the way. Here are a few life lessons I have gleamed from watching the Tour all these years.

  1. Although only 1 rider will win, it takes a strong team to make that happen.
  2. Accidents happen all the time. The key is to pick yourself up and keep going.
  3. If you break away from the pack you end up working harder than if you stayed with your team.
  4. Planning ahead will make your journey much more enjoyable.
  5. Pace yourself, you can’t go full gas all the time.
  6. Without proper rest you can’t compete at a high level day in and day out.
  7. At 21 stages, it’s a long race and those who win are good at many things.
  8. Proper nutrition will improve your performance. We can’t power though our days on caffeine and cigarettes alone. 
  9. Competition will push ourselves to work harder and you may surprise yourself on what you are capable of doing.
  10. Cheaters never win. 

Today I am thankful for being able to watch the Tour this year even though it is not carried on any tv channels, the slower pace of a rainy day and watching the leaders battle it out on the mountains.

I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
