Don't Quit

This morning was the 1st workshop for the I Am CrossFit participants. There was such a huge turn out and it showed me how dedicated each of you are to become healthier and more fit. I know I am not working with any of you directly for the challenge, but I just wanted to say keep up the hard work and don't quit. 3 weeks down, 5 weeks left, and a life time of fitness! The poem below is always encouraging to me...

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you
down a bit,
Rest if you must; but don't you quit.

Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When we might have won had we stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow;
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight whe
n you're hardest hit;
It's when things seem
worst that you must not quit.
