Here at Fusion we couldn't have said it any better..Go Be Great!! To the 2020 Fusion grads Claire Roche and Brady Hoffacker Erik Hoffacker, you've got this. Claire Roche graduated from Xavier last weekend (in her official home grad ceremony) and took on the challenge of her first marathon (Cincy Flying Pig) and it was just postponed a bit and Brady signed to play collegiate soccer at HPU (we're making sure we arrive the first day in tip top shape and ready to bust the 2 mile TT). And, Valerie Miller graduated from nursing school and will be taking on her big career change! To all of the 2020 graduates, Pluto has some words for you. Go be Great and build your VISION FOR YOUR FUTURE! @coachsamisrockstars @visionforyourfuture @2020grads @gobegreat

Today was one of those days as a Coach when you are amazed by the goodness and strength of human character. Brittany Garman ran 1.9 miles every hour for 19 hours to race money for homeless children; Alexis Feely did her first 70.3 solo=Alexis Amazing Adventure, raising money for the Food Bank; Kate Schnittman raised money for the Food Banck on a 40 mile ride in 40 degree weather. These athletes went above and beyond and have accomplished so much physically and spiritually. I am so proud of each of them for what they have done!!! Some true Rockstars right there. #firsthalfironman #19hoursofrunning #foodforeveryone #coachsamisrockstars

Who misses swimming? Is it the calmness of just being in the water? Is it your training buddies? Is it the excitement of pushing yourself to beat the clock? Is it just being? Looking forward to the day we can get back in pool or even swim freely in the open water (some can do this now). Looking forward to coaching my dryland class tonight and otherwise...see you soon in the water! https://www.usms.org/fitness-and-training/articles-and-videos/articles/how-to-get-through-the-loss-of-swimming

Reprinted from a Fusion Rockstar!! When you can't leave the house except once/week, what do you do when training for an Ironman. Ironman Virtual Racing!! Jolinda Bokhorst isn't just training for an Ironman, she is training for life. Building a vision for HER future and her family! Building a strong future, a strong body and a strong mind. Who wants to join her at the next race? Thank you to every athlete that has inspired me to keep being creative with your schedules; creative with your "challenges" and creative with ways to get us all on the best path. #Ironmanvirtualracing #coachsamisrockstars #visionforyourfuture Ironman vr. The first one ever! Starting on Friday and ending on Sunday you have To complete a 5K run a 90 K bike ride and another run of 21.1 K. This morning I ran a 5K and after that jumped on my bike for a 90k ride. I used the Rouvy App and rode the Boulder 70.3 course while watching the pro ladies ride same course on Ironman live! Now it’s time to relax the legs and prepare for tomorrow’s 21.1 k run! This is fun!!!

11 years of coaching has taught me that it is all mental :-). Well, not all, but quite a bit. I had the privilege of working with Carrie to overcome an injury last year (not that my injury was a privilege, but she was amazing and taught me so much about myself as well as how to frame a champion mindset with my athletes). It takes a village! Frame a champion mindset. #passionforperformance #itsallmental #rebound
