"……….I am more confident in my abilities and willingness to try new things.

If you're a woman who refuses to lift heavy weight because you fear the bulk? I think you should give it a try anyway: This terrified line of thinking interferes with your capacity to do so much more than what you think you can do right now.

    Fun battle with other coaches @ 7 am this morning. Knew I was in trouble when Juan came out for run a few meters behind me. My goal at that point was to prevent him from lapping me.

    My time was 42:33 minus the 13:00 minute start time, but thanks for bringing that to my attention, F.I.T.A. gone bad.

If you are in the West U area and want to get in that first WOD of the new year, let me know. We will be starting around 10am. Text or call me at 713.557.9278 if you want in for directions or email Jacky got me some big tractor tires for xmas to flip so I imagine that will be on the menu…
