Wow once again it is the beggining of a New Year. I hope that everyone was able to reflect on all of your accomplshments in 2011 before all the new challenges begin. In our lives of always trying to push farther, faster, higher we seldom take the time to sit down and acknowledge our small and large accomplshments. If you haven’t done so already I highly recomend that you do this little exercise. Sit down and write out all of your accomplishments and your challenges. After you have looked at the past then you can start to plan out your goals for 2012. Build upon everything that you have already done and learned. Look at your strengths, your areas that need improvment and come up with a plan that will take you to the next level of achievement. A sound plan will guide you to your full potential and hoping you get there is not a plan!
This year for me brings with it many challenges and tons of opportunities which is exciting. I will be starting back at University, applying to Masters programs, continuing to coach athletes and toss in a few challenging races just to keep a little balance in my life.
To everyone who I coached, trained and taught, thank you all for an amazing past year. I am always inspired by the people who surround me in my profession. So many of you have to overcome adversity, step into the unknown and you all face the task and conquer it!! That is inspiring. Facing your fears and living your dreams, just like the quote from Jon Blaise. I wish you all continued success in 2012 and I look forward to being part of your journey.
