Happy Sunday!  Hope you’ve all had a great week.  For those of you that are here in Vancouver, I hope you were able to get out and enjoy some of the fantastic weather we received this week.

There is a lot going on so let’s get going with this week’s Weekly Wins.

Alana competed in the provincial climbing competition this weekend at the Richmond Oval. She climbed well for the two qualifier rounds and was just edged out of semi-finals by half a point! The field was quite large with twenty-six in her division, so she was quite happy with her placement of thirteenth (twelve went on to semi-finals). We’ll have to wait to see what the final points distribution will be for her invitation to finals in Saanich, BC. 

My official last day at North Shore Wellness is this Monday, April 30th.  As with life, plans evolve as time passes and I’m excited by the prospects of what will come.  I had an epiphany in a personal development course I’m in, and this week I will be writing a personal mission statement to guide me as I move forward.

Rob and I climbed this week with our climbing partner Susi.  I was able to get on the wall for a few climbs, and thankfully my endurance was good.  I decided to climb a route, graded at the top of my abilities before I had my ankle injury, and as I moved laterally, I felt something snap in my ring finger.  I stopped the climb immediately and quit for the day.  On assessment afterward, I discovered I strained a tendon in my finger.  Lesson learned… when taking time off, for whatever reason, return to sport must be gradual, so the body has time to rebuild strength.  It looks like I may be taking a couple more weeks off to recover, which will no doubt be good for my ankle as well. 

Quote of the week: 
“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.” – Maya Angelou, American poet and civil rights activist

Have a great week!
