Welcome to Crossfit Reclamation
No Baby Leave the Stockings On recap…
Oh my….again I am left speechless and full of emotions that are difficult to put in to words…maybe it’s the euphoria of a successful day because most who know me know I usually don’t have a difficult time expressing myself.
The No Baby competition that we hosted today was an incredible display of athleticism, determination, drive, heart, soul, and courage. All of the women who came to compete in either their first or 21st competition are winners. You took the challenge to push yourselves to new limits, to new PRs, to a level of competitiveness and drive you’ve never done before. You opened new horizons for what can become of you as an athlete, a mother, an aunt, a daughter, a sister, a spouse. We are changing the stereotypical image of women…in every way possible. You ladies found something in you – something that you might not have realized was there. It’s different for each of you and I hope you have a chance to reflect on the day to understand the difference you make and can make.
I am amazed at the community and bringing this together today makes me proud to be a box owner, a coach, a CrossFitter, and a friend/support system for each of you. You make what I choose to do a pleasure and seeing you sincerely happy for each other, even though someone might have had a “better” score than you…that “better” is defined only by a number. A number that is a moving target, one that you will chase down and make disappear and reappear as something stronger, something faster.
I am always amazed at how the energy remains although the bodies are gone. Looking around the gym each of you left a little something behind…a special welcome, a smile, a hug, a reconnection, a memory. These things keep me going and keep me focused on providing you with the opportunities, the ability, to take back your lives…restoring your confidence levels with a support system to reclaim control…and the reason of the name…CrossFit Reclamation.
I hope you can take the experience and pass it on to others…take your knowledge…your lessons you have learned to institute change in others. And to also kick a little ass along the way.
Tobey McLaren, Sean Madden, Robert Mitchell, CJ LaPointe, Kevin Sandberg, Earl Murphy, Shawn Roussin, Todd Francis, Adam LaBarre, Andrew Baker, Matt Grazier, Matthew Jeffers, Keegan Pafford, Josh Normand, – thank you again so very much. You work your asses off and remain supportive, encouraging, professional, personable…while you judge, organize, and put up with me. That’s not an easy task and I am so damn proud of you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You take charge as needed and know how to carry on the organization and running of this. You see what needs to be done and do it. I am honored to call you friends, not just members. I love each and every one of you.
Now I have to go see if I can figure out where this smoke is coming from….because I can’t see my computer screen…it’s gotten all blurry.
