I Resisted But CrossFit Won

Since I started CrossFit about a year ago, I’ve resisted talking about it much here. In fact, I’ve resisted talking about a lot of things here that did not at least in some small way have something to do with fatherhood or raising my girls. You may disagree. But I’ve decided I don’t want to limit myself. CrossFit in particular is simply too much a part of my life for me not to share some of that enthusiasm here. So I’ll be doing that from now on along with sharing other, non-parenting, things. Whatever I want.

As a start, I competed in the Hybrid Summer Challenge this past weekend. It was awesome. I was the oldest male competitor and the lightest one in my weight class. I went in with low expectations. Mostly because of my bum shoulder. But I surprised myself. I did much better in the initial, shoulder intensive, event than I thought I would. I’m upset I didn’t go in with a “I can win this thing” attitude. That won’t happen again. I’m really looking forward to the next local competition.
