Snowflakes and Athletes

I have just returned home to Flagstaff after a refreshing four week hiatus at my parent’s home in the Lehigh Valley.  It is always nice to get home and spend some time with mom and dad; I feel like we don’t get to do it often enough.  It was sad to leave, but it is very exciting to be back in Flagstaff as well.  Since I was gone, the town had been pummeled by snow.  So much so, that I have a three and a half foot deep pile of snow directly behind my vehicle, rendering it temporarily immobile.  As I thought about it, I realized that snow and an athlete chasing success should have one thing in common.

The snowflake in and of itself is quite small, yet it is capable of covering mountains, cars, or whatever it pleases provided it comes in a steady flow.  The athlete is much the same in that initially his fitness is small, but with a steady flow of training, he begins to be able to take on and overcome feats he never thought possible.  So with the harsh winter throughout the world, I ask you one question.  Will you be afraid of the snow and stay inside or will you be like a driving snow and stay consistent?  The choice is yours.

Train hard, train smart,

Carson Boddicker
