Introíbo ad altáre Dei

You will notice a new flag in the gym the next time you go in.  Crossfit boxes across the country are adorned with flags that honor warriors and give us a constant visual reminder of the hard work, perseverance and dedication that goes into any great cause.  Quite simply, you work harder, go faster and push yourself under the colors of so many heroes that our flags represent.

 
 

The new flag is the coat of arms of the Prieslty Fraternity of Saint Peter.  This is a clerical society committed to the formation and sanctification of priests and the deployment of those priest in service of the Church.  It now hangs in our box because Mike C (Mookie) is going to seminary at the FSSP's house of formation in Denton, NE.  The same attributes of the flags mentioned above apply to this group.  The battle is spiritual and these guys are some of the best trained warriors around.  It is a seven year beginning to a lifetime commitment.  He will need all the help and support we can give him.  He ships out Sept 5.  We will be getting together for a little send off, I'll keep you posted. 

Here is how Mookie will be spending his days.

HONOR THE FALLEN BY CHALLENGING THE LIVING

The 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001 is quickly approaching.  That weekend you will have two opportunities to honor the fallen in a way that only Crossfitters understand.  The gym will be closed on Saturday Sept 10 so we can take part in the Travis Manion Foundation 5k run to be held at Furman University.  Register here. Travis was a classmate of Tal's at the Naval Academy.  The main-site hero wod for 7-19-2011 is named in his honor.

  

The next day, Sunday Sept. 11 the gym will be open so we can take part in the 9-11 Throwdown.  This is a fundraiser for the Disposable Hero Project.  There is no charge for the wod, but we will take donations.  We will open up around 2:30 and the wod will kick off at 3:00.  And of course after working hard, we will be ready to play hard.

 

I would like to challenge you to do both events.  Push yourself. Pain to remember so we never forget.

Move something heavy

The gym will be closed tomorrow.  If you are feeling froggy head over to Crossfit Reaction in the morning and move something heavy.  The Crossfit Total is part of their Greenville Games Series.

 

If you're up for a raod trip, Marty, Zo and Joel could use some support at Hilacioius.

See you Monday.

FISH OR CUT BAIT

Because you always want more...another installment from the good doctor.

Who Wants the Ball?

Larry Bird. Peyton Manning. Michael Jordon. Wayne Gretzky. Nolan Ryan. Brandy Chastain. Pat Tillman. George Washington. Joan of Arc. Carlos Hathcock. Lt. Michael Murphy.

 This is a seemingly random collection of names. But can anyone tell me what these people have in common? All of them, when the game was on the line and the seconds were ticking down. When it was time to fish or cut bait. Put up or shut up. Lead, follow or get out of the damn way. All of them stepped up and wanted the ball. That is what winners do. When it is do or die time, winners always want the ball. They want to be the person the team, squad, country counts on. They are the ones that look at you and say “I got this” as they stand up and expose themselves to fire. As they hang in the pocket just a half second longer and take the hit. They are the ones that hide in the bush for days on end to take that one shot that could turn the tide. They are the ones who rally a young embryo of a nation to victory over a suppressive government.

 What makes these people so different that they time and time again look at the coach and say “Give me the ball. I want it”? Some say people are just born winners. They say there is something genetic inside them makes them want to be out front at crunch time. Others say winners are made. The ability and stubbornness to try, fail, get up and try again is what does it. I don’t know what the answer is but I do know that all winners, without exception, have failed at some point in their lives. Bird and Jordon have tossed up bricks as the buzzer sounded. Peyton has tossed a few interceptions in an attempt to make a play. And so the story goes. The difference between the people above and those whose names you do not remember is that even after they failed, they still wanted to ball.

 They went back and practiced. They got faster. They got stronger. They trained harder. Reworked their attack strategy and then went back into the game, war, bush and kept taking their shots.

 Winners sometimes lose. Losers always quit. Winners NEVER quit.

 Do you think CrossFit has you beat up? Missed a few reps on your over head squats? Can’t get the hang of those cleans yet? Hand stand push ups have you frustrated? All of us can answer yes to at least one of these questions or one like them. Do we quit or keep pushing through our weakness? CrossFit can make us stronger, faster and more confident in our abilities. Not just our physical abilities but mentally as well. But we have to work on those areas where we fail in order to get there.

 Now my question to you is, when Game Day comes…

 Who wants the ball?

 Pain don’t hurt. Chicks dig scars. And no one ever got some by riding the pine.

-Doc A
