“This whole journey was never about making a roster or being on a team,” Hayne said after learning he’d made the cut. “It was about giving myself an opportunity. I wanted to take a risk, put myself out there and put my faith in action. Faith without action is dead. This whole journey, I’ve never felt so alive.”
This quote is from Scott Ostler’s story in theSF Chronicle 9/6/15. It is about the great Australian rugby player who has made the 53 man roster for the NFL SF 49ers. He can run back kicks and runs, especially in the open field very dynamically.
As we begin our fall season and talk about goals with our team we will share the “faith without action” comment.
We had a great summer season of racing. We expect to bounce off of that into an even better fall season. We are asking our swimmers answer 3 questions for us.
1 – What are you willing to do to make your goal happen?
2 – What sacrifices will you make?
3 – How many training sessions will you miss?
We think holding swimmers accountable for their progress helps set them in a position to put their faith into action.
