Finding a New Challenge


This was a really good weekend; I started a garden, I finally finished doing some spring cleaning, and I did a triathlon.

But the best part of the weekend is that I also saw some pretty amazing transformations in a lot of people; I saw one amazing woman conquer her fear of the ocean and swim a whole .5 mile in rough waters and become a triathlete; I saw another amazing woman who also became a triathlete: I saw her bike and run like she never did before… she was already a great swimmer; I saw a young lady’s confidence raise to the sky and finally prove herself that she can do what I always knew she could; And I saw two guys with no training finish the line with no struggles and no training but a mindset that can move mountains.

It really was an amazing weekend in many ways, and most of all it was the end of a phase that in a very subtle way has become the beginning of a new one, considering that we all have projects/goals in our lives and they all just need a plan, a process and some time for it all to come to an end, someday, sometime.
Having a goal, a project or a challenge set in our minds doesn’t always mean that we will transform it into a reality, but if you have a plan you are much more likely to make it happen.

June 21 is officially the first day of summer, and I challenge you to think about something that you want to accomplish this season, think about it and put it in a piece of paper; I will bring envelopes to class this week so you can put it in, seal it and write your address on it; I will send it back to you on September 21, the official last day of summer. It could be a fitness goal or a personal goal, something you always wanted to do; it could be just one or five different goals, it could be whatever you want it to be.

And if you want to follow thru, here are some steps you should take:
1. Think about a goal and write it down twice, one for me (the envelope, no one will see it but you) and another one for you to keep.
2. Make a plan on your own and make it happen; ask for advice if you need help with a plan.
3. Print your plan and put it in a place where you can see it.
4. Make it happen.

So, whether you are a triathlete or not, whether you want to be one or not, there’s always room for all of us to become a better version of our selves, there’s always a new goal, a new accomplishment that’s set in our minds, even for those that have finished the line of victory. There’s more out there and you can do it, remember, this is the year and this is your life, so make it happen!

Congratulations to Ana Jelenic, Lori Merchant and Cathy Smith, for the 6 months of training, endurance and commitment that finally came to an end… or maybe not
