I love local competitions among my friends and coworkers.
But even more than the competition, I love the handicapping.
And I love seeing how everyone handicaps differently. So when my fellow Apple co-workers, who are new to this process, asked me about the odds for the fitness challenge, I was excited to say that we weren’t doing odds, since that would require one unbiased person to handicap. Instead, I was going to show them all how to expose their biases.
Out of the 9 rankings, 3 people have me finishing first. One person has me finishing last.
My wife, was not one of the 3 people that has me finishing first. She went on a little rant about how I’m not in as good of shape as I was last year.
Which is fair – I’m turning 40 this year. Each year, I’m a year closer to dying. (Health care workers don’t like hearing that when they ask you how last year was, by the way.)
But it’s all good fuel for the fire.
I just wish I didn’t have some sinus issues that put a sharp pain in the back of my head when I climb a fight of stairs.
Still, the show must go on.
And of course, I’d love it if you’d sponsor me.
We’ll see if I can represent for the nearly 40 crowd tomorrow…
