Back on my soap box!

Well it must be time to put the world to rights, I am feeling particularly motivated today and am looking forward to new challenges. I watched a fantastic documentary on the Community Channel regarding out door adventure in particular Parkour and Rock climbing. The aim of the project was to go local schools and get children using their bodies to keep fit and to challenge their minds by overcoming fear. It was a great programe and a great idea, it is so good to see active kids and these sorts of activities are brilliant forms of education.
Whilst I am feeling quite so inspired here are a few inspiring quotes to help inspire you:
"I learned that courage was not the abscence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." Nelson Mandela (pictured above for the large percentage of children interviewd who didn't know who he was!)
"The first thing is to love your sport. Never do it to please someone else. It has to be yours. "Peggy Fleming
"The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we hit it." Michelangelo
So now we are all feeling inspired lets get out and do something about it. This blog may be brief but that is because I am too busy being inspired!! Off to teach for two hours now so watch out students - I am feeling energetic!! Bring on the national competitions.

Stay Healthy
