#NeverGiveUp

I ran, really ran, for the first time in a month yesterday and it was magic. I thought “oh I’m a runner again”
But why do I feel the need to associate my athleticism with a sport in order to validate it? I’m not just:
Cait the runner or Cait the soccer player or Cait the hurdler or Cait the powerlifter or Cait the yogi.
I’m an athlete, no matter what I do.

“I have had students over the years, male students especially, that are like ‘I just started, how long before I can expect to touch my toes?’
To be honest, I don’t know because we’re all different, right? I would say this - do it everyday, or at least 5 times a week and then YOU tell me how long it takes.”

 The entire roster also participates in yoga class, which players enjoyed so much last year as an optional activity that the staff decided to make it a mandated part of player workouts this year.

The big idea is that happy players make for better players. Everyone in the facility, from coaches and players to personal assistants and valets, is expected to follow Carroll’s mantras regarding positivity of thought, words and actions. “Do your job better than it has ever been done before,” he tells them.”
