It’s been a while…

Day 98

Hello Everyone,

Well… Hello There!!! It’s been quite a while since my last post. Synchro has kept me busy these last few weeks.  Now that I have completed (and scored well!!) in my classes this semester, most of my spare time has been spent on daily recovery of my training sessions.

We have been working really hard to get prepared for our debut at the Canadian Open this month.  New routines, means a new approach to our training techniques. Harder practices, increasing endurance and working towards a confident start to the season.  This year of course, is leading up to the Olympic Games.  Time is of the essence and we are running out.

You know, this life is not for the faint of heart. We work our butts off every day just to make it to that one AMAZING moment of our lives… And that one moment will define us.  It will be a part of our lives, living on through our friends, families and future generations of athletes.  All of the people that love us and support us, those who are in our corner, guide us to that one beautiful moment we will share with the world.

It’s days like today when you realize that you KILL your muscles and work so hard to PUSH those limits that you truly start to understand that the future is NOW! We are so close to our dreams, if we wanted to we could just reach out and grab it.

Never EVER take days like this for granted.  The times that our body cringes and your mind tells you that its had enough; thats when miracles happen.  Achieving a goal is not just about showing up, it’s about showing up mind, body and soul, ready to work for something you’ve loved since the day you started.

Be strong and BELIEVE that what you’re doing is right and worth every minute!

Love Always,

– C
