And just as quickly as it started, my first CrossFit Open had officially come to a close!
I gotta say, even though I wasn't planning on signing up, I'm really thankful that @aredubz wrote my name on the board and said: "Well now you have to."
I learned all about my weaknesses, shined light on what needs full on attention (read: everything) - but I also learned that I don't have to be so scared to just dive in, fuck up and learn! I usually get really hard on myself when I "suck" but this taught me to be appreciative of what I CAN do and, even more, what I can accomplish when good friends are around you cheering you on.
Thank you, @crossfitflushing, for cheering me, and every single member, on.
