There are many versions of the story of Milo and the calf. Today, I’ll use this one:
To become the greatest wrestler in Greece, to win six Olympic laurels in wrestling, Milo had to train like the rest of us. His method? Borrow a new born calf and carry it around Croton day after day, week after week, and month after month. As the calf grew, so did Milo’s strength, until he was the strongest wrestler in Greece and could carry the now full grown bull upon his back.
What did he do once the bull was grown? He ate it.
That’s what we’re about here, carrying the weight, getting in the miles, doing the work, day in and day out, making small gains, occasionally dropping the calf, but always picking it back up. It’s a simple enterprise – get better. At sport, at life, at everything.
