A beautiful game

"The point", Bredon said grandly, "is to play a beautiful game......why would I want to win anything other than a beautiful game?" - The Wiseman's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

We train to be better.

To lift more. 

To move faster. 

To achieve endlessly more difficult feats.

Setting goals and reaching them is incredibly motivating and rewarding.


However, there is also incredible fulfilment in the doing.  

The simple act of turning up. 

Doing the work that matters, the learning, the practice, the failing, the persisting.

Always striving to move BETTER.

The act of moving well AND of striving to always do so, are a beautiful game, and it's a game you can participate in forever. 

Why would you want to play anything else...?
