Now we get to hear Alexa and Griffin’s reasons for signing up for the Open!
Don’t forget to join us at the gym tomorrow, Thursday, at 8PM for the first Open Announcement Viewing Party!
Alexa: “I’m doing the 2018 CrossFit Open for me… to prove to myself that I CAN do it! CrossFit has taught me to push myself past my physical/mental limit. When I first started 2 years ago, I would stop during a workout or give excuses such as “I can’t do that anymore” or “that’s too hard for me.” During 17.1, Griffin yelled for me to get one more lunge in the last 5 seconds of the workout and I *dramatically* dropped the dumbbell from overhead and said “I can’t.” In the past year of training, something clicked. I decided for myself that I would never have that same attitude again while training or with anything in life. When you start believing in yourself, great things are to follow. So bring on 18.1, I’m ready for it! ”
