Never Stop Pushing.

February 15, 2013

I clean and jerked 180kg tonight.  If you’ve been reading for a while, then you know how much this means to me.  I’ve come pretty close to quitting many times over the years and I honestly was beginning to think it would never happen.  I’d like to thank everyone close to me for pushing me.  You know who you are and I couldn’t have done it without you.  And I’d like to thank YOU for reading.  Starting this blog has been one of the best things I’ve done with my lifting and I plan to keep writing as long as there’s a few people out there who enjoy reading.

Never stop pushing.  Some people are meant to win world championships and some people are meant to clean and jerk 180.  Some people are meant to snatch 50kg.  The numbers are irrelevant  the goal is what’s important.  Decide who you are meant to be and whoever you are, never stop until you get there.

Well, time to drink.  It IS my birthday after all.

Thanks for reading,
