This evening I've been watching the 2012 Crossfit Games with my daughters. The women's finals has been on the last 2 hours. I crossfit and enjoy functional fitness, but hate watching other folks suffer. I wanted the girls to learn a lesson tonight so I kept it on.
They've been glued to the TV and want to get to Crossfit kids on Thursday.
I'm not pushing fitness.
The theme tonight was simple- if you want something bad enough, you have to struggle to get it. Tonight they saw women cry, bleed, and sweat in order to achieve. More important- things that are worth it require work and sometimes will be a struggle.
I hope these subtle lessons will transcend the muscle clad women on TV and will seal a narrative that should last R and V's lifetimes...
