Crossfit GP goes to Sectionals…

Chris and Becky will soon be on their way up to Portland to compete in the Crossfit Sectionals this weekend.  I started to think about how the majority of the general public would not have the slightest clue or care as to what a Crossfit Sectional entails.  Our little community of Crossfitters as well as the little pockets of Crossfit communities growing rapidly around the world have quite a different view entirely.  I realized that this is a culmination of so many things for so many different kinds of people.  For Chris and Becky it represents loads of work completed faithfully.  Mental battles.  Physical battles.  Emotional and spiritual battles.  At the risk of getting a little sappy, I just want to communicate to Chris and Becky as well as our whole Crossfit community how consistently inspired I am by people like Chris and Becky.  Not because of their awesome abilities with the 10 general physical skills, or their physique or beautiful clean and jerks.  I am inspired that they continue, day after day, to lead the rest of us to something much greater than ourselves.  Your example inspires change in people.  It has inspired change in me.  I see other people in our gym changing.  Their lives are changing in a profound way and yet you both are the best example of humility in our gym.  You never make it about you and therefore others are able to see clearly that it is not about you and it gives every one of us the freedom to work in our own capacities and feel good about our work, to process through failures, to share great successes.  As you stand at the competition this weekend, I hope you both will remember these things, stand tall, let your CrossfitGP shirts be seen and SHINE BRIGHTLY.  You are loved and we are with you!
