Sometimes I look at what I do for my career – being a managing editor of a website – and I think I have no idea what I’m doing. I mean, I’ve never had formal training in journalism. Well, I mean, I’ve taken seminars and workshops pretty consistently over the years. And I’ve spent my whole life learning and practicing the art of writing. And I spend a lot of time reading, observing what others do, asking lots of questions, and generally analyzing what I’ve done that works or doesn’t work. But I don’t have a real education.

But then again, I never had a formal education as an athlete or trainer either. I mean, I took seminars and workshops pretty consistently and showed up at the gym no matter what. I sought out people who knew more than me, I talked to other athletes who were ahead of me and asked them what they did, and I read a whole lot of books and magazines. And since the late 90s I’ve made it a goal to learn and practice new sports with regularity, always analyzing what I’m doing and seeking to better myself and my performance. But, I mean, I never had a real education in fitness.

Or did I?

All of the sudden, things started to come together. Great job today, Francesca! #snatches #practice #weTalkinBoutPractice #crossfit #allwomencrossfit #womenofcrossfit
