BTB, way back when I first joined "the other forum", you posted something about power lifting, it caught my attention and I replied "I want to be a power lifter, but Im not strong enough" You replied "power lifting is not about strength, its a state of mind"
The last couple of months I have come to understand exactly what you meant...You have to win the mental battle before you have any chance to win the strength battle....I have hit more PR's because of my mental edge than because of my strength edge....and missed some for the same reason.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
