The Man in the Arena

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. “

-Teddy Roosevelt

A lot of people were nervous about competing today. I hope that you all feel differently now, and if not, please re-read the above quote! It is harder to be the one who steps into the arena, lay it all on the line, and be exposed, than it is to sit on the sidelines and judge, or say, “woulda, coulda, shoulda.” This all goes to leaving your ego at the door, just at another level. Today, a lot of members showed what they were made of and it was motivating and inspiring! Everyone did great, represented as a gym and community beautifully, and had a blast in the process!!

Today we will be doing Tessa’s Birthday WOD! Her birthday was on 12/5 and this was the soonest we could work this into the programming. Also, we originally didn’t have a Beyond Rx option, however in yesterday’s competition, Tessa did all 50′ of the handstand walk in the workout UNBROKEN!! So today, we will do extra for that category since that is where she set the bar at! Great job Tess!
