“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals”

Last month I shared an interview with a guy named Jake. A guy with a wife, two little boys, a job, friends, hobbies and a gym habit. A seemingly ordinary guy but one doing something extraordinary.


Months of training, a moment of glory – and so much more

This evening, after just under 12 hours of swimming, biking and running – not to mention countless hours of training – Jake became an Ironman. Congratulations, Jake! For those of you who missed his interview, here it is.

Not only did I find Jake’s achievement to be a great example of setting goals and setting them high, I thought it was a perfect time to remind that sometimes, it’s not only the athlete who achieves his or her goal. Whether a goal to make it to the gym three times a week, commit to CrossFit for six months or complete an Ironman, achieving a goal is rarely done alone. It often takes the love and support of those close to us.

In that spirit, two more fitting entries below.
