Today I came across a little blog post I wrote 2 years ago right when I was arriving in Austin.. Two years later I am more passionate than I was then.. Two years later I feel the fire growing and spreading not only inside of me, but everyone around me.
Two years ago i was just joining the Crossfit Central community. Now I have a new project of my own as I take on PurePharma and building our own team and community. I can’t say its been easy, but I can say I am more confident than ever that I am heading on the right direction.
Grateful for everyone around me and more focused, dedicated and motivated to continue to create the life I want.
June 2010 —- Today as we drove southeast to Jack’s Generic Triathlon with coach and I realized that is just not about fitness anymore. Almost 3 years now since my 1st encounter with crossfit, starting out as a athlete and now my full time passion and dream. Not in a million years did I know I would be here in Austin, TX working with and all the amazing coaches and community today, but I am and what we are doing is not just about fitness.
Fitness is part of what we do, but we are in the business of touching people’s lives and empowering people to reach not only the their full athletic potential, but we are changing the world. This is powerful stuff and it wasn’t until recently that I realized it.
I am here to change the world. I am here to write the future I want. I am now part of something bigger than me, larger than live because this here is the future. Not worried about yesterday, I am only looking ahead and it looks good cousin. It looks real good.
Crossfit isn’t for everyone and that’s ok with me, because if it was easy then everyone would be doing it. This is about changing your lifestyle. Changing the way you view your body, your nutrition and your attitude. Is a journey and you may never arrive at your final destination, because what I’ve learn with crossfit just like in life everything changes and adjusting takes effort and will and most will quit, but not me.
It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone else. It doesn’t have to be logical, it doesn’t have to be easy.. I am honestly not even sure what it will all look like when is complete, but how do I know is going to work? well, because I know that there isn’t anything else I rather be doing. I haven’t worked a day since I came to Austin. I don’t plan to start working now. The day crossfit becomes work for me, it will be the same day I walk away from it.
I want to help you and I surround myself with the right people heading on the same direction, if is not the same direction as you are going that’s ok with me, as long as you are doing what is best for you. I love y’all!
Here is a little something to give you a idea of what it feels like…. and whatever it is you are doing in your life I hope you feel the fire insdie of you
