Sitting here drinking my morning coffee and taking in these indescribable views of Oia, Greece... I can't help but giggle about the past few weeks.
From possibly the busiest schedule in my working year, I found myself on a plane flying to compete in Abu Dhabi in the 911 Firefighter Challenge.
With Fire shifts covered, hockey skills prepped, Fit by Fire programs ready for the weeks ahead, I was ready to mentally engage for my own physical endeavours.
At the end of the week, I found myself PR'ing in Female Individual by :11 seconds from 2014! I was Stoked with the 1st place result but more importantly, improving my own performance. My Tandem partners were amazing as well, as we achieved 1st place in both female tandem and Co-Ed tandem.
Female Tandem was a new category this year which found some new girls joining the sport which was fantastic to see! More women taking their physical fitness to new levels and challenging themselves with a new sport.
I thank Jackie Palmer and Trevor Fera for racing with me and making Day 2 so fun and unforgettable!
I mentioned at the start of this blog, I was giggling... I say this because of my past year and suffering a serious injury. I Never thought I would be back to where I was 2 years ago, or if I would ever be given this opportunity again.
This quote popped up in one of my reading a while ago, and has stuck with me... Let me share with you!
"Opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor" - Jackson Browne
For me, I wanted to Return to Abu Dhabi, and race in the 2016 event. That was a long term goal of mine since 2014. And when I accomplished this, I couldn't help but giggle, as reflecting on the road blocks I went through and how persistence truly does pay off!
For you today... I challenge you to Create a Long Term Physical Goal for Yourself.
Something that may seem far away, but something that is important to you and your physical health. As you work on short term goals, this goal is always tied in. It will be your dance floor!
I also want to say a HUGE Thanks to my clients and supporters for the ongoing encouragement!
Fit by Fire will be offering some new programs and exciting things coming soon...So keep following along!
