HOW WILL WE FILL YOUR POSITION?! For real, you have been a solid, strong, reliable North Star for this entire forum. I cannot even count how many times you have been there to debunk a myth, defuse an argument, enlighten a newbie, provide a personal experience, recount a fun personal memory, etc.! I have developed immense respect for you over the years, and I can honestly say I’ve grown as a coach because of numerous things I have learned from you.
Thank you all for your kind words. I have had a lot of fun here over the years. Like GT I am not just going to vanish, but when stopping by it will be as an ex coach and ex gym parent, not to ban people or tell people to be kinder.
We are talking about members who could fill our shoes, the good news is there are great people here who definitely could fill our shoes easily.
Enjoy your retirement @bogwoppit. Thank you for all those years, it's been great getting to know you- although I am still mad at myself for not making the kids miss training so I could meet up with you. Caught in the CGM cycle.
I too am coming to the end of the journey I think. Had enough of the madness and need to back away and re-enter real life. It's just gymnastics!
This place is a huge support and has kept so many of us sane. And you are a huge part of that,
