Well, it’s been exactly a year since I first stepped out on ice on speed skates. I remember that feeling of anxiety mixed with excitement as I started to get the feel for my life over the course of the next four years.
Here I am on my 28th birthday, pre- Rempel imitations and strength session at Edgemont World Health and there’s no other place I’d rather be. I love the journey so far. To push myself physically and psychologically is such a reward in itself and ultimately that’s what this whole thing is about anyways, right?
So, go out there and do it, kids. Don’t listen to the naysayers. Keep your approach honest, keep the amazing people around you, ditch the ones that just want to bring you down. Surround yourself with awesome and it’ll inspire you to be. Don’t wait for things to happen, make them happen.
