{Friday Musings} Why do you Crossfit?

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about why I do Crossfit.

There are many reasons:

I always tell myself that I do Crossfit for myself– and not for others.

So I’ve always struggled with whether to try competing or not.

Let me preface this with a disclaimer: I have the utmost respect for those that compete in Crossfit– You’re amazing to watch–at WHATEVER level in which you compete. It’s inspiring.

As a former competitive athlete (in soccer, nordic skiing and track), I’ve always been drawn to Crossfit competitions.

Well, halfway drawn.

I get to the point where I think I want to compete and then I ask myself “do you really want to compete?”

My answer, thus far, has been “not really…but kind of.”

Like I’m having some kind of inner struggle around the whole thing.

I want to be good at everything I do.

Weight lifting and Crossfit included.

The competitive nature of Crossfit is one of the things I like about it.

But I strive to be competitive with myself– and rarely with others.
