Coach Dan’s Sunday Spotlight 1.27.2019

Good morning CFTP,

Wasatch Championships Qualifier Update

Week 1 is almost in the books! Good news… You have until 6 PM Monday to submit your scores now. If you have completed it, please submit your scores now so you don’t forget and miss out. If you want to give it another go before the deadline, tomorrow would be perfect or you can go in during open gym time today from 10-12! I won’t be scheduling 19.3 until Tuesday so anyone who wants a redo 19.1 or 19.2 can do it Monday.

19.3 and 19.4 will be announced tonight. So keep your eyes peeled for that.

Enjoy the ride

Life is like a rollercoaster. There are ups and downs and things that throw you for a loop. Many times I feel discouraged or exhausted during the initial climb… Seems to last forever sometimes and then when you reach the top, the drop off and subsequent exhilaration make the climb worth it.

We can’t control many of the situations we are thrown into but one thing we can control is our attitude in those situations. I told you that my first couple of weeks of the year I failed to accomplish my running goal. I wasn’t even close. I could have taken a couple of different roads after the two weeks of failure. 1) I could have said, “Well, I guess I am just not cut out for accomplishing this goal and I should just abandon it” or 2) I say, “It’s a new week and I am going to make it happen!”

Luckily for me I chose choice 2 and this week’s goal has been accomplished and I feel great! Notice how I said I chose #2. It’s a choice. That’s the beautiful thing about life. YOU get to choose!
