But that’s not the main core value that I’d like to site in this article. Perseverance is the number one core value at SGT Peterson’s for a reason, and we’re proud to be supporting an event in which the participants so readily show it. Loretta Trevino of Seattle was participating in the Babes in Bikeland event and was hit by a car disabling her bike and taco-ing her front wheel. She then stopped by a Nice Ride station to keep racing. She finished the 5th Annual Babes in Bikeland on a Nice Ride bike, then said “those bikes are heavy..but you can still haul ass.” Now that’s some thinking outside the box! Many times people get a set back and give up. Like when they are sick on Monday, they just don’t workout out all week. Since they didn’t work out all week, then they proceed to eat like crap for the rest of the week. All because they had a set back on Monday they use that as an excuse. This puts them on a slippery slope and they end up shooting themselves in the foot by setting themselves back a month in their progress.
At SGT Peterson’s we believe in our core value of selflessness (service to others before ourselves.) That’s why, on a monthly basis, we give about 5% of our total revenue back to the community. Our last donation we gave away a certificate for complimentary boot camp to local participants of the Minneapolis event called Babes in Bikeland.
If you have a setback, push through it, persevere. Maybe you’ll end up having a nice ride after all. What was your latest setback?
