There are several people in my life - both near and far-close friends and mentors -some that I have never met, some that I get to see on an almost daily basis that inspire and move me. There are stories of legends - of the greats of our country and our world's history, that inspire and move me.
In terms of the passion and adventure that I find in my immediate life, the sport of fitness, Crossfit is the vehicle by which I have learned and grown over the past year and a half. I had a friend ask me the other day what Crossfit means to me or what do I love most about competing in it. Its a BIGGER than life sport. For me, it requires faith that I am capable of more than I every thought possible. In crossfit I get the privilege of seeing women 2 to 3 times my age mastering and honing the technique of their pullup, olympic lifts, and their own wellness.They are warriors in their lives. I get to see world class athletes, fire breathers, strengthen their strengths and conquer their weaknesses. I have the privilege of playing as we are all designed to play and being present to every moment possible.
Here are just a few of the videos I have watched from the time I started Crossfit to now, to remind me and get me excited by the potential to be stronger, better, and have the time of my life in this sport I love.
