Our theme this month is motivation. Our homework is to think deep and about the things that drive us to our accomplishments. It’s a athletes job to posses a understanding of how to be motivated, and stay driven through obstacles and challenges.

If you haven’t done so, read Coach Doug’s post for this month. Spend some time thinking and learn about what motivates you.
