With the first 2014 CrossFit Open WOD announcement 2 days away, I wanted to put a few words in. My blog posts outside of WODs are rare, but this is important to me and the Quwwa Family.
I WILL WIN EVERYTHING.
Read that sentence again. Read it out loud. Yell it as loud as you can.
WE WILL WIN EVERYTHING.
We’ve preached that the Open is not about competition, it’s not about the Games, it’s about testing your fitness. We lied. It is completely about competition… but not against the elite in the box. Look at a picture of yourself from a year ago, THAT is who you are competing against. We won’t make the Games, only a few us have a chance at qualifying for Regionals. ALL of us are competing against ourselves.
CROSSFIT QUWWA WILL WIN EVERYTHING.
That person you used to be, who had no idea what you could accomplish or how fit you could be, they don’t stand a chance. You will go toe-to-toe with your former self and prove what you can do. They didn’t know what it was like to push like this, what it really meant to WORK for it. This Saturday, you will face off with that old version of you and absolutely blow them away.
