As I enter my 5th year of weightlifting and am continuing to expand my coaching, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my thoughts about my journey into this sport. I taught myself to lift, well I tried to anyway, have done close to 40 competitions as a masters lifter (meaning over 35), including those at the national and international level, and coach adults and youth. Oh, and I have also worked my way through a couple of minor injuries. At least I would consider them minor because they didn't bring my activities to a halt.
As I am training, competing, coaching and trying to fit it all together with life, I am struck from time to time by thoughts and musings of bits and pieces of all of it. I think some of them are pretty good lol, so I want to share them and perhaps you can find a bit of something helpful for you. If not, well, that's ok too. Take what you can use and leave the rest.
