A few moments in the Evolution of SPA

So after a short break form posting it was time to catch up a little.
Since the Adventure started, I have done a few things!
I will put down in abbreviated form for the time being as it is still hte start of the evolution of Sports Performance.  Needless to say I am loving it and it is only the early, early beginning!
I have been lucky enough to lead run clubs at LULULEMON stores which have been a lot of fun.  I have led at both Square One and hte Oakville location.  My passion has also provided me the privilege of becoming an ambassador at the store.  It is yet another way for me to share my passion for coaching with others.  It has actually been great as well as it has now given me a couple of athletes to work with as the tri coach towards goals.  One is working towards sprints and another towards IRONMAN.  It is a lot of fun and I truly am working towards my true passion!
As well as the run clubs I have have completed the first running clinic as Sports Performance Adventures!  that has been the greatest time!  I led 5 athletes to distances between 5k and a half marathon.  All of them reached the gaol they set and they did it with a smile on their face.  They are all coming back for the next clinic which will start in a couple of weeks, and they are all moving the goal distance forward as well!  I am looking forward to continuing to develop the clinics.
So, time seems to be becoming a far more precious commodity as I continue my coaching develpment and add athletes and continue my training.  But, it is overall the time of my life!
If you are reading my blog, thank you!  If you want to discuss training or coaching please feel free to reach out as it is a tremendous passsion for me!
Happy training and remember, Live for your Dreams!

And we progress!

I continue to move the game along nicely.  I have now planned to set up a run group for the month of Febraury through a local Lululemon store that has shown me great support.  Ideally that will move forward to a 5-10k run clinic for newbies starting in March.  Again, I have a tremendously supportive group that is behind me with a great client base to share.  It is awesom starting out on this quest with the support of like minded and energetic friends!  I have always preached, live for your dreams, now I am living proof that it can be achieved. This proejct is a vision that I have had for a long time, it feels very refreshing to be going after it!
PLease follow along as this becomes a reality, it will be fun!  Cheers!

And the progress continues!!

The Adventure and chasing my dream took another progressive step or two today!  This is a process that I realize is going to take a while to get up and going, but, it is progress none the less.
Early today, I registered the domain for the Adventures so that I can start developing a website before long as well.  Now that it is taken care of I can sit and continue to put together my business plan and 1st year goals.
Last night I also took some time to start sketching some logos.  It was kind of fun.  As a person who is not an artist, I did come up with some fun creative stuff to work with.  I did reach the end of my creative ability before long.  So, this afternoon I went to a friend who is a designer and asked her to put something together for me.  If anybody out there is creative, feel free to give it a go!  The name kind of says what it is about.
I also confirmed registration to some courses today.  This is an important step as I move forward.  As the education evolves I will share what it is I am learning and doing.  I am excited to share and talk(as some already know) so stay tuned!
Feeling good to be chasing this, I am looking forward to seeing where this brings me over hte next while!  Enjoy the adventure!  Cheers!
