Being Thankful

Dec

Posted by Coach Jay Weber

Thanksgiving has just passed, and thanks to the world of social media I was able to send messages to many of my friends, wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving. It also gave me the opportunity to post what I am thankful for, and see what my friends might be thankful for.

While it might seem over the top, I am thankful for EVERYTHING. For those of us reading this message, we are likely involved in triathlon in one way, shape or form. We have to consider ourselves lucky to be able to participate in the sport, support loved ones in the sport, or just watch the sport.

Triathlon is a very individual sport (at least while you are competing), but we all have a team behind us- whether it is the bike shop who repairs our gear, the knowledgeable coach who provides us training plans, and listens to our woes, or our loved ones who change their schedules so we can participate in what we love. We are all so lucky to be able to participate in the sport, even with its setbacks.

Health is one of those awesome things that when it works, you almost don't think about it, but when it isn't firing on all cylinders, it is not so grand. We have all had our ups and downs, but for the most part, we're all doing pretty well, and should be thankful.

Take some time in this off-season to be thankful for what you have- thank someone who has helped you get to where you are, and try to give back. It'll make you feel good, change the pace a bit, and might even change your perspective on how this sport has made you who you are.
