Remember Why You Started

Sometimes it pays to ponder a bit.  Think about when you first began your sport.  What made you interested in it?  Did you like the adrenaline rush of racing and competing?  Was it being with your favorite friends?  Learning from special coaches?  Figuring out that you were good at a certain aspect of the sport?  Did you like getting in shape and feeling fast? Participating in crazy cheers and team spirit?

Go back to those memories every now and again to recall why you started.  Consider all the things you loved about your sport in the beginning when it was new. What do you still love about it?  Find the "little kid joy" and allow yourself to smile and wonder! It's a lifestyle. 

Make it a great season!
