Yesterday was another milestone in our CrossFit career. This was my second competition and Jere’s first. It was mostly for fun but the atmosphere was very similar to my first competition the Iron Curtain, awesome energy from a community of people that are all cheering each other on. It reminded us that we are in the right place and that our dream to open a CrossFit gym is one worth fighting for.

When I found out about the “max pull-ups” WOD I was scared….I have this thing with Pull-ups, but I was determined to overcome it today…..I’m humbled to say that did not happen. Nope, I got up on the bar and let myself or my ego tell me again that I wasn’t good enough. Its okay. I acknowledge that its there and move forward. I might have to battle my ego 700 more times before its gone completely, which is also okay with me. Today I did 10 pull-ups unbroken. Jere did 27.

This is what “grace” looks like…. 30 clean and jerks

|Winning the battle this time! I did every rope climb in the WOD.|
