Ah, the test.

12 Sep

…looks like I’ll be put to the test in March 2013 at the 2nd Annual Gump Games.  During Embrace the Gauntlet, my mind was ripped to shreds.  I attempted to run the 5k at this year’s Gump Games.  I completed it, but felt a bit defeated.  Rich, a fellow CrossFitter at RRCF and blogger of 100 to 50 and Getting Better, has committed to compete in the Gump Games.  As much as I’m nervous and we aren’t even close to the competition, I’m hopeful that I will be stronger and not just physically, but mentally and emotionally.

 

CrossFit is more than strength.  It is a mind game.  It is similar to the mind game we play in life.  You are what YOU make it.  And guess what?  Your mind has a whole lot to do with the way YOU feel and the choices YOU make.  You can decide to stay positive and make the best of it or allow your mind to take control and throw you off your game.  Don’t let YOU get in the way of YOU.  Commit to making changes to better yourself.  It may not be CrossFit or fitness.  You may decide to make changes to better yourself in other ways like to spend more time with your family, be a more positive person or be easier on yourself.  Take the steps necessary to help build a better YOU – one that you’ll be proud of.  Forget what everyone else is thinking, doing or saying and do it for YOU!

 

This time, it’s all about you.  Make the best of it and change that MIND!

 

Change YOUR Mind.
