Everyone has their reasons why.
If you asked me 3 years ago why I competed in Crossfit, I would’ve given you a generic answer with not much meaning behind it.
It wasn’t until these moments, at HOA in 2016, that I realized what my real reason was. •••
My whole life got turned upside down in the time it takes to breathe in and breathe out. I lost my motivation, couldn’t focus on training, and felt paralyzed in trying to figure out what my life was going to look like moving forward.
Then I was gearing up to compete at G3 in St. Louis and was still struggling to find that motivation. But it was in that weekend, that @marcustheoneberry asked me to be on that same team for @hoacompetiton...I took a few moments to think about it, then I realized that I was done making decisions based on what others were doing. It was in the moment I agreed to be on that team that, for the first time in a very long time, I chose myself again.
I chose me.
I was able to see the belief others had in me to help me start to believe in myself again. •••
So why do I compete? Why do I look forward to HOA every year?
Because in that moment 2 years ago, I made a promise that I would never let myself give up on me ever again.
Find your why, keep it at the forefront of your mind, and never ever give up on the goals you have set out for yourself.
Here’s to gearing up for the 10th anniversary of HOA, and what I foresee to be the best year yet #stillirise
