    Coach. Dawn posted some great reflections on the Open last night and I was afraid that many of my CFH Blog Lurkers would miss them, so i'm taking the liberty to put them up again. Sage comments from a woman who finished 84 in the world in her age group. Thanks for capturing the moment, Dawn. Next year, Top Twenty! "So I sit here tonite on the last nite of the CF open 2012 reflecting on this journey of the last 5 weeks. At times it was difficult, nerve wracking, inspiring, crushing, torturous, joyous, terrifying, beautiful, fun….sometimes all at once. It’s bittersweet as it comes to a close. No more waiting for the clock to strike 8 pm on Wed nite to run to the computer to reveal the WOD, the oh no how can I do that one attitude, the strategizing how will I make this happen, how many reps should I go for, what day will I do the WOD, will I try it again, then checking my place week after week to see how I fared against the other CFers going thru this same journey. I loved watching my fellow CFH competitors go thru this battle every week, fighting thru the pain, coming out at the end conquering their internal beasts getting just one more rep. It was a beautiful thing to watch even if the results weren’t always what we wanted. Each and every one of you has inspired me so much. I loved those not competing too, there to cheer us on, coach us with tips and tricks, giving those oh so helpful inspiring words when needed the most. It meant everything and so much more to have you there pushing us on. It was such a great learning experience and an honor to part of…I have grown so much more than I probably even realize, pushed boundaries I normally wouldn’t and now know I can do what I fear. You don’t know you can do something if you don’t try… you just have to do! A HUGE thank you to Coach Dave for building this community of spirit that is so awesome! I can’t imagine my life without CFH in it. I have learned so much more than how to clean and jerk or deadlift or how to do a muscle up. It goes a lot deeper than that. There are lessons of higher learning here, of commitment, dedication, patience, perseverence, and good old fashioned work! As I reflect on all of this, I make a promise to myself to push myself like I have these last 5 weeks every day that I step into the box and everyday that I step into life’s WODs. So grateful that I could be a part of this journey!!! Thank you! Reply Rich says: 03/25/2012 at 11:04 pm Amen!

    Coach. I wanted to second Dawn's comments and thank you for encouraging me to participate in the Open. I didn't want to do it, because I'm troubled by the commercialization of "Crossfit as a sport" that seems to be consuming what I love most about Crossfit -- its joriginal grassroots mission to bring better fitness to everyone. I simply felt like I would be part of the problem if I did the Open. but you were right and I was wrong. Five weeks later, I'm still into Crossfit to better myself and defy age and gravity more effectively. And I still think everyone doing Crossfit matters more than determining who does it best. But I definitely learned lessons that have already made me a better Crossfitter and a better athlete, which I guess is the bottom line. Thanks again, and thanks to everyone over the past five weeks for the encouragement and camaraderie. Looking forward to next year!
