Dear Spears Strong Clients:
The holiday season is a great time to reflect on the past year and look to the future.
And as we look back on the past few months since launching Spears Strong in August, we cannot help but feel overwhelmed with gratitude at all of the support and encouragement we have received.
We are less than half a year into Spears Strong and because of you we already have so many wonderful and lasting memories and experiences. You all inspire us and we know that you inspire each other.
You adventured with us in the beginning with outdoor summer workouts across Camas, from Fisher Basin Park to Grass Valley to Crown Park and Heritage Park. And you were there when those outdoor workouts extended into the fall -including some dark, wet and chilly days.
We watched the sunrise at Fisher Basin with frost on the ground and worked out under the Super Blood Moon. Workouts at Grass Valley were interrupted for moments of reflection as hawks and cranes flew above, deer and bunnies wandering across the wetlands. And of course no workout was without its comic relief - from synchronized 90s workouts to Hoover Ball games and early morning jokes.
You were there when classes were packed and there when maybe it was only you and Jonathan.
And when the rain forced us inside, you warmed up our new home at Camas Friends with your smiles and positive spirits.
You harnessed your intrepid side and joined us for two hour workouts- from bear crawling on the stairs of Mt. Tabor to endless lunge and duck walks around Duniway Park.
From sun soaked views of the Columbia River Gorge after the lung busting climb up the Cape Horn Trail to the knee high puddle at the end of an 8 mile trail run, you gutted it out and made memories that will last a lifetime.
It is your belief in us that has made - and is making - Spears Strong a reality. Welcome to the ground floor of something that we - and hopefully you - believe has the potential to bring health, happiness and a little adventure to our community for many years to come.
We can’t wait to keep your lives interesting and exciting with future training adventures such as the Shamrock Run, Snowshoeing, Marathoning, Paddle Boarding, Obstacle Course Running, Hiking and more.
Here’s to getting Spears Strong in 2016…. together.
Happy Holidays and many thanks for believing in us!
Jonathan and Shelby Spears
Training you for All of Life’s Adventures
