I did it. I got all my courage together and registered for the CrossFit Open.
I have until February 27 to prepare for five weeks of grueling WODs, some of which I may or may not actually be able to complete.
I can’t do a handstand push up, or an unassisted pull-up, and I am not so good with anything with a squat.
But I have supportive coaches who are doing their dead level best to prepare all of us. I have an incredibly encouraging community at the box; friends who will help pick me up when I fall. Falling for me is a given, as I clearly demonstrated last week when I wiped out doing a squat clean.
And I have the desire to show myself that I can do it – it may not be pretty, but I can do something.
I am terrified.
This is going to be awesome!!
