What a great article! It spoke to me. In the past my competitive attitude has gotten the best of me. In hockey I spent a lot of time in the P box for guess what? Yup, fighting! It was a co-ed hockey league and a few times I got hit by a guys who was just hitting back not knowing it was a girl that hit him. In soccer I got taken out for cussing at myself. In the last 5 years I've really started to understand what it means to be competitive and have fun with others and myself. As I became involved with CF I saw people putting up times for there WOD's. At first I resisted but I think I've found that I can now pay attention to my times and still have fun. Between CF and my job in the ER at 37 I've finally grown up. Because let me tell you I'm sure as not going to compare my times with Kelly, Eva or Lynne!! I'm also not going to play hockey with them! LOL!

Yes, this community is truely genuine and helpful and I'm very glad I found it. Great place to get answers and get sound advice. The lack of ego's on the boards is appreciated by all and allows people to drop their guards.

Cool Jennifer. It's always nice to come to terms with yourself and your abilities and go from there. Then learning how to work around or improve them is the key to growth. I am always humbled by many things in life but that is a good thing. Better that, than to be reckless.
BTW: what article, exactly?

Excellent article by Jim!
On a similar note, in Tony Blauer's book, "Be Your Own Body Guard", he said, "Will beats skill."
It definitely counts.
