Mental strength directly transcends into physical strength. I now can say this after periods of not climbing- working only on mental health. Once I tried my projects; they were easier. Once I went for a run that would usually be hard for me; I could push myself so much further. Interesting to fathom. Don’t we already know this?
Last week, I went surfing with Elan, (one of Canada’s strongest climbers, So inspiring!!!) We both were humbled. But, our mentality still stems from this…Positive thinking will attract the same. As the waves were consistently hitting me in the core- I tried to figure out and learn what I am doing wrong…where are my faults?…”the wave we want to catch is only 20 feet ahead! How do we get there?”

I am very excited for the following years and to see what is happening with the next generations for climbing. The youth are crazy strong and so positive. Everything we need to keep going!
Louder than 11 (John Glassberg and Rich Crowder) have made this smart/funny little video.
