I had been dogging it on my CrossFit journey posts lately due to some personal challenges on this end and only getting to the gym 2-4 times a week the last several. But, my focus is back and I was reenergized today by spectating at the Triangle Invitational hosted by the gym I belong to, CrossFit RTP.
It was amazing to see the teamwork and camaraderie across the various events and was awesome to see our team, the RX team from CrossFit RTP bring home 1st Place!
I believe the reason I was so inspired is that it reminded me that getting in great physical shape and becoming more healthy is not a short sprint but a long journey through many obstacles. These athletes competing didn’t just show up but they had been working toward this for many months and years. It was a culmination of perseverance, patience, and positivity…all factors leading to success.
I’m proud to call CrossFit RTP home and it was a tremendous effort by all of the volunteers from our gym and our winning squad! Excited to be involved some way next year…heck, maybe I’ll even compete!
