The competition bug has definitly hit the INFERNO!  I love the fact that so many of you are fired up to test yourself against others out there.  And in reality its not that you are testing yourself against others, its that you are just testing yourself on a more highlighted stage.  What i mean is that with these crossfit compeitions, you are having to put what you have on the line, out in front of others and then give what you have.  Now this simple fact will make make NEVER want to try it.  People dont want to look bad in front of others.  Heres the simple thing, 1) if you ever finshed towards the bad in the gym, did you get cheers and applause or did you get laughed at?  RIght, you got all kinds of cheering.  This is one of the greatest things about CrossFit is the community spirit!  Most spectators know exactly what you are going through so they want you to finish and they will cheer you til the end!!!  2)One of my favorite quotes is from President Theodore Roosevelt: "Itis 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 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 and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.".  Dont be afraid to test yourself, or to get in and mix it up.  The only true test is you against you.  Lets see what you got!
