Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. I have been super busy.
This past week I have been competing and spectating at the 2015 Reebok Crossfit Games. I competed on July 21-23.
This has been the best experience. I have been working so hard, everyday, to get ready for the Games. And this past week has reflected all of the work I have put in.
I have also learned so much and kind of what to expect for next year:
1.) Don’t pack all of your clothes with you. Just don’t.
2.) The thing that sets everyone apart is mental toughness.
3.) Don’t beat yourself up.
4.) The WODs feel like they go by fast (even if they may be 20 min long).
5.) Have FUN!
6.) Leave it all on the competition floor.
One of the questions that I have been asked was “Were you nervous at all?” My answer was “Yes.” I wasn’t really nervous at all until it was time for me to walk out, or going through the tunnel that led to the competition floor. But I wasn’t fearing that I may not do well or I may not be able to beat the other girls in the WOD. I think it was more of excitement. I was excited to show the world what I can do, that I have put in time and effort to make it where I am today. The most important thing that I did this week was have fun and give it my all.
So the the question, again, is “Were you nervous?”
“Yes, nervous not meaning worried, but meaning excited.”
Thank you to my Coach Jeff Mckinney for all of the programming, help, and support this past year to get me where I am now. I am going to miss you while you are living in California. But I now that good opportunities are coming your way!
I want to thank everyone for all of your support through my Crossfit Journey. This has been such a busy and fun filled year.
Bring it on 2016!! #SMITH150
And congrats to Ben Smith and Katrín Davíosdóttir for earning the title as Fittest on Earth!
(I met Katrín 2 days before she was crowned.)
