JohnA: Amazing Olympic Dedication

JohnA: I just checked out the Ice Dancing Pairs competition won by an American couple. It's not my thing but I was astounded when I read they had practiced together for 29,000 hours over 17 years. That's over 33 hours a week, every week for 17 years. Basically, ever since they were 8 or 9 years old. I'm thinking that's more time than most married couples spend together over 17 years. Amazing dedication and a well earned gold metal.

Question: Would you be willing to spend 29,000 hours over 17 years to obtain a goal?
