What Now?



Now that regionals is over, my off season begins. It is always a good experience and always a journey for myself. I am always learning and growing. I've been doing Crossfit for 3 years now. 2016 was also my third year at regionals. Yes, my first year doing Crossfit, I went to regionals. My first year at regionals in 2014 was unbelievable. It was nerve-wracking and exciting. I was a rookie and had just learned a lot of movements in Crossfit. I wasn't expecting much from myself out on the floor but I was ready to see how well I could move with the girls. My background in sports has helped me a lot in Crossfit. I have done gymnastics, track and field, pole vault, cross country, wrestling, power lifting and bodybuilding. My background is not an excuse. I've realized how bad in shape I was, despite all the sports I've done. I was like starting all over from scratch but I loved it! The challenge is what I enjoy. I've been an athlete all my life and I love the feeling and craving to be better. 2016, regionals in Dallas, which was my third year goes to prove I am not ashamed to say that I was a little disappointed. My dreams is to make it to the Games one day. And maybe I had my hopes a little too high, but once again I experienced all my weaknesses. I WILL continue to work on them. Like I always tell my coach Marcus, some day's I'm the hammer and some days I'm the nail. BUT, what really opened up my eyes was on the first day I was down to 30th place and all I could think about was to pick it back up. On the second and third day I went back up 15 spots. That had to say something? I didn't leave angry after all, I was proud of myself. Who knew I could jump back up to top 20? This is not the end of me, this only makes me more hungry!
