I was watching the latest version of The Karate Kid last night and when the little Dre Parker wins the fight, his mom was saying how proud she was of him.  Well i hope she was proud of him more for the fact that he kept fighting instead of the fact that he won!  This made me think about my brother competing out in Miami this past weekend.  He ended up placing 3rd overall.  He was happy but the pissed all at the same time.  He wanted to win.  Who doesnt. I wanted him to win too!  Was i proud of him less because he finished 3rd and not 1st?  Not at all.  Im not proud of him because of his placing.  Im proud of him for what he did when he was out there.  He pushed himself into a VERY painful place on the Fran with an Assault Bike, he pushed hard on a trueform run which is normally his achilles heel, that he had to battle back mentally when he got a bad judge, and that he tried out a strategy, that didnt work, but that he put himself all out there with the plan anyways!  It would be stupid to be proud of him only if he won because that isnt pride.  Im proud of him for what he has done, and where he has come from.  Guess what...i feel the same way with the INFERNITES we have.  I have seen change, i have seen growth, i have seen confidence.  I could not be prouder of you.  Im not just saying that to say it.  I really mean it:)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
