Actually Matt, I was slinging brew (coffee, not brewskis) at the SBUX store where I work.....had to miss the BBA/Games. Heard it was a blast, though.

Tony, thanks, my friend! Actually, I've been posting daily (almost) on the "Over 50 CrossFitters ..." log lately. Turns out that I was kinda "double posting" using this and the other log, which is a no - no.

I've had my socks blessed off this week planning for and leading worship at our church this Sunday. Such a privilege to help lead others to the throne....

Have a blessed evening, Tony!

I had an interesting revelation last night when I was going through this log. I don't know why (can't understand myself sometimes) that I had a meltdown....I forgot all the progress I had made since I started (I have been reminded too!) and what CrossFit has enabled me to do, never mind my age. I've learned a great lesson and I want to share it with others of you who are/get discouraged;

1. Don't ever forget what you have accomplished, no matter how small or
how long it has taken to get there.

2. Don't look at others and judge your performance or abilities based on
their abilities and performance. You are NOT them (and they are not
you either).

3. Embrace your weaknesses and make them yours. Work on them every
chance you get. They will become your strengths!

4. Celebrate your strengths and share your knowledge with others.

5. Enjoy your enthusiasm for CrossFit - - it's contagious.

Well.......I've kinda come full-circle in less than a month----WOW! And what's even more amazing is this; no one likes to hear/read of a whiner/complainer, etc. No one on this forum, [U]no one[/U]has ever chided me or stopped being supportive because I did whine and complain (and without good reason). What I received was compassion, support, friendship, encouragement, and a good kick in the caboose! I love CrossFit and I love this community. Thank you!

That why one reason that it is great that you've kept this log. It is so easy to forget how far you've come. Many of us are guilty of the same thing. We see people around us doing more than we are able to do, and it is frustrating that we aren't better. Keep showing up, keep training hard, and enjoy the journey!
