Gym Dad Watching The Journey Unfold

Pictures tell more than a story

Pictures show a journey

Evidence of grit, drive, pain, focus...


Sometimes the journey is good


Sometimes bad


Sometimes painful

Sometimes joyful

…and sometimes, the journey turns to a righteous anger at a failed beam routine... 


…that results in one of the most stunning floor routines I've seen in real life...


While on the surface I see skill, glamour, awesomeness...


I also see evidence of that grit and determination that pushes her through hours and hours of training...


Training that pays off not only in top notch skills and routines...


Not only in 1st place finishes...


…but training that pays off in confidence, joy, self-esteem, and an "I can do anything", "I'm taking a big bite out of life" way of living that will propel her through her whole life.

Yeah, sometimes pictures capture a gymnastics event.

But sometimes, if we're lucky, pictures capture the journey of a girl becoming a woman of character.
