(Side story)Two Years ago I participated in my first 5K. I walked, ran and jogged for just under an hour to reach to finish line. Fast forward to this year (I hadn't really run for any distance since the 5K) I ran 4.04 miles in less time. Since joining CrossFit Believe, I have made huge strides in my athletic capacity, it's evident.
A couple weeks ago My brother and I went for a run- a 2 mile loop, He was hesitant, he didn't think he could make it. However, we completed it in 30 minutes which included a little rest. He was super proud of himself for finishing (as was I)
Today we ran 2 miles for time. My brother and I finished at close to 25 minutes with NO rest. in the second 1 mile lap, he took the lead and set the pace. Made me so proud of him. This just puts a huge smile on my face. My brother was a 16 year cigarette smoker who quit smoking, joined CrossFit and changed his life. Today he is an athlete. Fitness is our sport and I LOVE that he and I are a part of it.
People exchange habits, sometimes bad ones for good ones. But, They must WANT IT. THEY must Do it.
