you look mad when you workout

If mad is the new term for the combination of focused, driven, and determined.. yep, I am mad as all get out.

No words can tell you how badly I want this.  I want to reach my potential as a CrossFit athlete, yet I am always the one in the way.  Why am soo afraid of my success?

Pshht..  fear. Fear? Of what? Trying so hard and not getting the outcome right away? Being judged? Being compared? Being average? Injury? Disappointment?

All of the above.

But that was then. NOW I am FULLY READY for this journey to begin. Tonight I had that fight in me for every. single. test.  I didn’t think about anything. I had full clarity like I used to during a WOD or lift.  When the row got rough, I just thought about how badly I want to reach my goals and fought even harder.

I forgot to mention how much I despise rowing. Pretty freaking exciting right?!
