time to toss off that label...

How many times do you get to fall in love?  I know lots of people believe in the soul mate stuff...but with 7 BILLION people on the planet I can't get behind the idea that there is only one ideal person, one shot at finding "True Love" what ever "true love" even means....

I have fallen out of love and I am finally Ok with it. I finally realized I don't have to fit myself into a box I no longer and perhaps was never meant to fit into....

I fell in love with Crossfit almost 3 years ago....but for the last year or so I have been cheating on Crossfit with weightlifting mostly.  Yeah, I tried to go back to her...but we just don't seem to work well together anymore.  I still love her...see her value, appreciate what we share and how she changed my life...but....I think we drifted apart a while ago.

The good thing about this is that I have also finally let go of thinking that I need to look like this:

or that I have to learn a handstand pushup or a pistol or a muscle up.

I wanna move like this:

Well, that's not even really true...I wanna move the best I can in this event....

So, yeah...I still workout in a Crossfit gym and I am sure that Crossfit and I will flirt and perhaps even fall into a familiar intimacy again....but it is time for me to let her go...and say I am not a "Crossfitter" any more. 

I don't have a label for what I am or what I do...and I kinda like it that way because it means I don't have anyone's expectations of what I should look like or what I should be able to do hanging over me...

It's me...chubby~slow~but strong.

That's it.

So thanks Crossfit....It isn't's me, and well, I hope we can still be friends.
