A great poem that can be applied to just about any situation for motivation. Pardon the gender-centric theme…written at the turn of the 19th century!

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Great news! Our own Whitney Maymon, a licensed massage therapist who specializes in CrossFit athletes, will be upstairs at MPH THIS FRIDAY, June 11 from 11a to 2p to give massages! Please email her at whitney_maymon@yahoo.com to get into her schedule, and see her offerings below! 25 Minute Recovery Massage ($45): Often used after athletic events to help "flush" the tissues, the goal of this session is to expedite recovery and reduce the occurrence of delayed onset soreness. Long, swedish strokes are used to increase blood flow and relax the nervous system. 25 Minute Specific Treatment ($50): A treatment designed to address a specific injury or problem area that uses deep tissue, cross fiber friction and trigger point compression to alleviate pain and discomfort. 45 Minute Prevention and Maintenance ($80): Ideally performed on a day of rest or before a competition or event, this treatment encompasses several modalities. It can be used to address specific muscular concerns, increase blood flow and relax the central nervous system. This treatment can be helpful, like daily mobility drills, with maintaining range of motion and reduced pain or discomfort. *All massages are performed on a table with athletes in appropriate attire. Please disclose relevant health history with the therapist, as massage can be contraindicated for certain acute and chronic medical conditions. No information shared during the session should be substituted for medical advice, and the therapist reserves the right to turn away any client who may require physician approval prior to receiving massage. Payment is due at the time of service and we are currently accepting cash and all major credit cards for payment.
