Reflection- 2015 my first CF Open, two months into CrossFit. Pictured- Coach Sheila encouraging a dying Amanda with the scaled 65# Push Press. Every single rep was hard. Every rep my friends were cheering and every rep made me want to complete one more. In 15.4 I cleaned 75# for the first time.
As the 2018 open comes to a close, and competing RX for the first time, I keep reminding myself that for me it has never been how I compare to my fellow athletes, but how the Open is a progress report for myself. And progress is my perfect.
Oh, and while my box, coaches and immediate CF community has changed. What has stayed the same is comradery, check-ins and strategy texts from my friends from every gym I've ever dropped into or have been a member of. Oh, the Open, it's the worst and the best. .
