Share a "Thank You" with You



Each day, we give thanks. Whether we directly thank someone in person, or think of "thanking" in one's head, or just purely say THANK YOU and genuinely mean it- we are aware that being grateful is one of the most priceless and fulfilling "feelings" in the world. I happen to work in a field that is constantly working in gratitude- and I am constantly being "thanked" for something I did that day with a client- whether it be helping them with nutrition, talking to them about their day, or simply motivating them when no one else would.

I have a very special client in mind that always gave "thanks"- and I say, "gave", because she relocated and can no longer train with me. I am totally bummed because this client was like no other. I trained her from Day 1 on our gym and saw her go from one person, to who she is now- and she is loving life.

She had written me a Thank You card before she left and I wanted to share it with you.

Erika,
I wanted to thank you for all of your time, patience, and perseverance with me. You have helped me reach goals that I had given up on and you helped me to find the "me" inside I have been looking for so long. You are a great coach, motivator and wonderful person who I admire so much. Just to know that you do to achieve your goals is a great example for me. Your positive attitude and care of all of your clients makes you the best! I would love to have you visit me. Good Luck always to you. You deserve to reach your dreams.


Hearing this makes it all worth it- knowing that I had helped one to believe when she/he almost gave up...that makes my day.

Give Thanks to those who you care about- let them know. They may not know just how much they mean to you and vice versa.

Ironman Training in Full Swing...

Hi guys...

Ironman training has been going pretty well lately. I have had a few weeks of 200+ mile riding, 30 mile running, and 4x/week swimming at about 3000yds (avg) a workout. I feel pretty good- however, been fighting a bit of a cold this week. Have slept a lot on my recovery, and this weekend, I will be attending a USAT Coaching Clinic in New Mexico. Looking forward to some continual learning and meeting some people with like-interests. Also, I will be getting in some swimming and running this weekend- in the heat!

Have a great rest of your week and keep up your training!

Master's Swim at 5:30 tomorrow...
