Ironman Arizona marked the end of my third year on the ironman "circuit." What a difference time makes. Before the start of my first full, Ironman Canada, I watched the sun rise while sitting under a tree and awkwardly yanking my wetsuit up over my thighs. My hands were clammy, and my brain was spewing a series of "I hopes." I hope I make the cutoff time, I thought. I hope I don't wind up burping Gu. And, of course, I really hope I don't drown.

Since the start of the New Year, things at Ganbatte have looked a little different than usual on Monday , Wednesday and Friday mornings. The second class of the day ramps up not with massive barbells and athletes failing as they try to hit a new one-rep max, but with moderate - low weights, high reps, and a lot of running.

One thing is always clear towards the end of the year, many have a good understanding of what they really want. The same applies to me. In the last month, I was able to take two weeks off from the gym, which made me assess what I want to do in 2015. I thought about where I want to take Ganbatte. There are TONS that I want to do and achieve. – I needed to write them down.  After writing a whole page length of goals,  and defining them –( meaning breaking them down to why?, when?, and how?) . I realized, this whole page of goals and game plans defines me…. what I really am about..


This question begs an answer from all my athletes, "What defines you?"  - Your goals do. And since we are talking about goals, we need to discuss what you want in 2015. Do you want to be a better mother or father? Are you marathon-bound? Are you looking to become a better competitor? Run Faster?  Lift Heavier? Over – all strength?  But let's take it to a next level. If those extra pounds are what you want to shed, ask yourself why it is so important, then write it down. If better parenting is what you want, ask yourself what's lacking, what you want, and write it down. And if crossing a marathon finish line is what you see in your future, that hard work is going to need some motivation. Be clear about why this is important to you. So breaking it down and then writing it down defines who you are.
