As we roll into the new year – hopefully it was a healthy rolling with your movement activities keeping you moving forward  – we always seem to start a fresh.

As with every day, a new year also brings, new dreams, new hopes, new possibilities, new opportunities, new doors that opens and our wish and dreams are always that it will be better than the last year!

So for most, you have entered some races, or you have made a list of races you want to enter. With goals you want to achieve at those races. Whatever they may be! They are always individual and no two peoples reasons are the same.

Make sure they are challenging enough… we are able to achieve so much more than what most of us think we are capable of!! In the same breathe though, make sure you know your WHY and on top of that your WHY must be imprinted into your soul. Getting to your goal is not going to be a walk in the park… If it is – it is not even a goal. You are going to have to work for it, physically, mentally, emotionally. You are going to have to be prepared to roll with the punches and to eat sore muscles for breakfast – that is when you train your willpower!

Your why is yours to own! It cannot be ego driven, because with the overflowing of sweat and tears, the ego is not present – PERSISTENCE, WILLPOWER, DETERMINATION….. those you need to work at even harder!

Along the way, have fun and enjoy every step of what will sometimes be a bloody, blue-nailed and stiff-muscled journey. See the end of the goal, but never disregard your own personal journey and every step you take!
