Rowing class @ 8:15 am!!!

Hey Everyone,

Coach Pablo here, recently returned from 2 weeks of being sanded, soaked, and sunned by the beautiful Colorado River…A magical journey that I recommend for everyone and anyone. By far, one of the most transformative and important trips I have ever had the pleasure to be on. A deeply stirring place. Hard to put it in words, not that it needs to be.

After emerging from the Canyon with some clarity and returning to Bishop, Colin and I met and came to a mutual decision to stop coaching for the time being funneling my energy into my private practice. This choice is not without a sense of loss. My time with all of you, developing myself as an athlete and coach, building, what I believe to be the glue that makes it all work, meaningful relationships are things that I hold dear. When I told Sloan the other day about my decision, she said, “Really? But all the people are so much fun!” I couldn’t agree more. I feel proud to have played a part in the development of CrossFit Bishop and to have had the opportunity to witness everyone’s hard won efforts by relentlessly showing up each day to chip away at whatever drives you to walk through the door. 

Drenched by early morning light and the silent movement of the Colorado River, sitting in folding chairs in a cirlce of people from various time periods of my life, toes in the sand and sipping coffee, I smiled a contented smile and said, “Happiness is born out of who and what you surround yourself. We are not separate. We are deeply affected by our context.” I am grateful to you all for being my context over the past 5 years. Thank you Colin and Molly. Thank you all. 

See you in the gym. 

Love, Paul

    So much to say to you, Paul, but at the moment… the only thing I can think is: THANK GOD YOU DIDN'T TRY AND GIVE UP COFFEE ON THIS GRAND CANYON TRIP!!!!!! (Referring to the reflection above about drinking coffee ;)). Maybe you and I will actually get a chance to work out together now? Glad you are channelling your energy where your heart is… it's the only way, really.
