I began CrossFit as a preseason training with the Amoskeag Rugby Club. At the time, even stairs was a challenge for me. Walking into this large, bright, empty room was, to date, the hardest thing I’ve ever done, well that was until the WOD started… As my lungs burned and my vision began to blur only one thing ran through my mind “DO.NOT.STOP!!!!!”
CrossFit has taught me a tremendously valuable lesson which is this: Stop making excuses. Do things. Try things. Even if it’s not happening now, it will. It totally will. I have learned to trust myself to work hard and when I want to quit, I must go on. Constantly learning lessons and winning my own battles is what keeps me coming.
I can’t express enough gratitude both CrossFit and myself for how much I have and will continue to accomplish.
