I am sitting here awaiting the announcement of 13.2. As I sit cant help but think about what its going to be and try to analyze my approach at something I know nothing about. Not really getting anywhere with that one. So, I was popping around the internet and I came across some words that just totally spoke to me.
Now, that is something I can wrap my head around. That is something I can take with me to the gym tomorrow when I face the "unknown." That is something every woman, every crossfitter, every person, should think about herself. Your biggest competition is you.
I cant help but think about where I was last year during the Open. Its funny how some things have changed over the last year, but some things have remained the same. I feel like last year the excitement was the "newness" and the simple fact that I was just pretty damn proud of myself that I was competing. I had no expectations and no real big Open goals. This year... the excitement is a different kind of excitement. The expectations I have for myself are different and my goals are clear as day... but in the end, I am still just damn proud of myself for competing.
I know the woman I was, I know the woman I am and I know the woman I can be. I know the athlete I was, the athlete I am and the athlete I can be. The only person that stands in my way is myself. I have to remember where I came from and use all that I have learned in the last year and a half to keep my head high and my goals in sight. I know my strengths and my weaknesses. I know how to beat myself.
Bring it on 13.2. I am ready.
