I saw a post by a buddy of mine that works at Crossfit HQ on Facebook.  It was saying that there were people saying how there is a huge difference between the top 10 athletes at regionals versus the bottom 10 and that how could the people in the bottom even have made it to regionals.  The fact of the matter is that ANYONE that qualifies for the regionals is BAD ASS.  PERIOD.  First, the level of athleticism in Crossfit now is at an all time high.  There are so many incredible athletes out there. So if you can get in the top 20 of your region to qualify for the super region, then you are in top .01% of fit people in the world.  Are those struggling at the regionals not bad ass?  Of course the are badass but since the test of regionals is to look for the top 40 in the WORLD, then the test is SUPPOSED to make the badasses look like they cant do it.  It IS pushing them past their limits.  And for those that didnt make it to the regionals but were trying to, dont discount yourself at all.  I mean you wont be exiled because you are in the top .03% of all fit people in the world!!  Realize what you are doing on a daily basis.  And realize how impressive it is at .01%, .1%, .5%, or .95%.  The fact is that you are working yourself to greatness and any step up is a step toward greatness! FEEL THE BURN!!!
