Tilting at Windmills
Sometimes I imagine, that to our friends, CrossFit must appear to be a Quixotic adventure. They don’t see the “giants” we see. Why must we do hundreds of things? Why must we lift so much, so fast, so often? To that I say, because I can, because I want to, because it is there. And maybe, because as a kid I imagined myself a superhero, and now for an hour a day, I get to be one. I get to lift heavy things, leap on boxes, and do things that to my friends seem inhuman. If I picture my cape flying behind me, maybe I can even run faster.
So, let us be a legion of Don Quixotes, tilting at windmills and being superheroes. Let us go out into the world inspired and big. Let reason and logic remain for the small.
