A week ago a rowing machine showed up at work. Followed by a challenge: Row 500m in under 2 minutes and you will get a $100 bonus.
I've never rowed before, but I gave it a go. My slowest is close to 2:25; the fastest is 2:10.
This weekend when I was in the office to exercise and work on stained glass I realized that it's okay that I am slow. The important thing is I'm exercising. I'm exercising for me; for my health. For health is truly the real wealth.
