Spartan 300

Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed. -Corita Kent

On Monday most of us coaches battled Spartan 300. A year ago when the 20 minute time cap hit I still had the last 25 pull-ups to complete. Then at the finale last year I had 10 pull-ups to complete before finishing the workout. This week I finished Spartan 300 in 18:33. hoLLLLLLLLLLLLLer!!!!

The quote above represents my CrossFit journey. Chipping away, day by day, one at a time, not quitting, and striving to improve... I can honestly say when I finished the workout on Monday I was proud of myself. Not only 90 seconds before time was called, but I finished the entire workout. Take that pull-ups and floor wipes. In 7 weeks I will do the workout in 17:30.

I encourage each of you to recognize an obstacle you have overcome in the past year and then pat yourself on the back for chipping away at the barrier.
