So I was at CrossFit this morning getting ready for the workout of the day.
A lot of the times during my own little pre warm up I close my eyes and think about things. Things like will the wod be hard? Will I be able to do this or that or what weight will I go with since I am just getting back into the game.
Today when I got to Hill Country CrossFit I was a little bit early. As I sat in the car I heard Coach Jerry yelling and I was immediately filled with nerves. I was STILL IN MY CAR and heard him. The 7 a.m. class is filled with some tough ass athletes. "What is he yelling about?" I thought to myself. Oh well, time to get in there.
Often I wonder if I use this fucking Brain Cancer shit as an excuse in my CrossFit life. Like yesterday in my "Reality Check" I acknowledged that while I don't feel like I have Brain Cancer, I know I do. Guess what I'm saying is that it's time to sac up and do what I love to do and that is throw some shit around and get stronger, fitter, faster and smarter.
I have been a follower of The Fittest Games which is a competition hosted by CrossFit Central in Austin, Tx. for sometime now. In it's 8th year now the theme for the Games is Courage. Shit, that is great. I have Courage. I have that. Not that I am entering any kind of CrossFit competition or anything.
Then I saw this and it woke me up.
