I love this video because it really “gets” what CF is about. I was the weakest, most out of shape person in my Bootcamp class and, although it was obvious and we all knew it, there wasn’t one time when I felt like anyone judged me for it. I’ve come a long way since February and my coaches/other CF-ers still cheer me on exactly the same way they did the day I did my first WOD.
I’ve always hated exercise (especially running) but now it’s about the challenge. It’s about doing something better/faster/heavier than I did it last time. It’s about competing against my self. Yesterday, Husband told me I look like a runner (he was looking at a photo from after Saturday’s 5K) and I have never felt so proud of myself. It’s become a lifestyle for me. I’ve already looked at the schedule for the local CF gym in NJ and I’ll be going at least once while I’m there.
Lately I’ve been looking in the mirror and saying “who is this girl?”. At first, I wasn’t sure, but now I know… she’s a fit, strong version of me and I sure do like what I see.
One of the best things i’ve heard from a crossfitter is that she both loves and hates being the last person done with a WOD. Hates it for obvious reasons and loves it because everyone is there cheering her on. i have to say, i totally agree.
