Entry 6

One of the best parts of this challenge has been the help of the students. I know it might not seem like much, but when a student says to me, "Mr. McRaith, did you drink water today?" it really encourages me to be able to answer that question with a "Yes." It seems that by putting your goal out to others it holds you a bit more accountable and provides some motivation. It reminds me of when I started to say that I was going to run a marathon. I knew that if I started telling people that I was going to run one, I better actually run one! I used that kind of social pressure as a tool to get through the training and finish the race.

We all get by with a little help from our friends!
