Non-Crossfit friends when you tell them about the @CrossFitGames: "That sounds awesome, so you're competing?!"
Um guys, it's not that easy
A recent quote that's stuck with me: "Potential is not determined by talent. Potential is determined by time + effort." Are you willing to work for what you want? Do you have the time to do so? Or better - can you make sacrifices elsewhere to create the time to do so? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It can be hard when you're pulled in so many directions to figure out which path to go. Typically it's not the one others tell you that you "should" or the one that might make you the most money - it's the one that you can picture yourself doing day in and day out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One thing I like to do on a weekly basis is write down everything that I was really stoked about from the week prior and see what patterns I find. The little things that excite you are not random. Strive to create a life full of those things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope this long ass post inspires someone to go #ALLIN on their passion. If there's one thing I want, it's for people who feel "stuck" to realize you can truly have whatever you work for. You don't have to live the 9-5 grind and put off your side hustle, or your dreams. GET AFTER IT! 😈👊🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Some long weekend fitness at the lake. All you need is a DB! 🏋🏻♀️👉🏻🏊🏼♀️ Run to end of road and back (~800m) in vest into 10 rounds: 10 DB Goblet Squats, 10 Alt. DB Snatch, 10 DB PJ (10/arm). Swim 50m between rounds. 💦 #crossfit

Saying no to cookies, the snooze button, and after work drinks is hard and causes some level of short term suffer. Saying yes to the extra set of squats, early bed times and prepping for that meeting is equally not fun in the short term, but this type of suffering is exactly what produces long term results. #builtbybergeron
Just heard the news about Camp. Going to Camp the summer of 2011 changed my life, and kicked started my pursuit of competitive snowboarding. I remember saving up for 3 years to go to camp. Bummed future snowboarders and kids won't have the chance to have the #bestsummerever in Whistler. RIP #CampOfChampions.
