The day has finally arrived. For the past two months you all have been steadily training to prepare for today’s competition. Most of you have been working on strength, goats, and/or have even dedicated more time to mobility and recovery. This hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed and today you will get the chance to put that extra work to the test. For some this will be your first Crossfit competition and for others you get to add another notch to the old belt. Either way, give it 100% effort. This past week the WODs were released along with schedule and heat times. Now, knowing the schedule of events be sure to give yourselves plenty of time to check in, warm-up, and fuel properly. Instead of just saying “good luck” or “hope you all do well” I’ve decided to leave you with some of my favorite quotes regarding competing.
“You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying. Do the best you can do every day.”
“Winning isn’t everything–but wanting to win is.”
“Going in one more round when you don’t think you can – that’s what makes all the difference in your life.” –Rocky IV
“The pain you feel today is the strength you feel tomorrow. For every challenge encountered there is opportunity for growth.”
“Winning doesn’t always mean being first. Winning means you’re doing better than you’ve ever done before.”
Good luck to all the competitors and most of all have fun!
On a side note, Intrepid wishes David P. a very Happy Birthday! Enjoy your day!!!
