The title says it all.  From Rocky 1 where Rocky is talking with Adrian he says that he doesn’t care if he loses or gets his head smashed in, “cause all I wanna do is go the distance”.  And he goes on to say that no one has EVER gone the distance with Apollo Creed.

 

Now this is a very dramatic example (and we don’t want anyone getting their head smashed in…but we aren’t boxing, are we?), we all hope that your last term isn’t anywhere near what Rocky had to go through in his first fight with Apollo Creed.  BUT, having said that, our goal as an educator is to make it to the end.  We discuss some ways we try to go about that, as well as how our years are generally planned.
