Thanks for joining me in my Follow Dave Journey, we are in week 28. This journey chronicles my attempt to be one of the Top 200 Fittest 50 – 54 year old males as measured by the CrossFit Open, which begins the end of February 2018. You can read more about the CrossFit Open here and here.
The Open starts on Thursday February 22nd. It is less than one week to go and I can’t wait. The first workout is announced at 5:00 pm Pacific Time.
At Veneta CrossFit we will watch the announcement show, on Thursday at 5:00, and then spend our workout time that night practicing the movements and strategizing the workout. Then, as a community, we will do the workout on Friday night. The scores or time for the first workout must be posted by the next Monday at 5:00 pm Pacific Time. Veneta CrossFit currently has 11 people signed up to compete in the Open.
My plan for next week’s post is to review the workout that was announced on Thursday night. I will try to give an honest assessment of how I think I will do and how I feel about the workout before doing the workout on Friday evening.
I’m hopeful that after I’ve completed the workout and posted my score I will write a post on how I think I did. We’ll see…….smile.
I live a very blessed life. I love my wife Darlene and the relationship and life that we have. My son Casey, his beautiful wife Destiny and our precious Granddaughter Kaylee bring more joy to our lives than I can express. Both Darlene and I have amazing parents that are involved, supportive, and important pieces in our lives. On top of that we both have an incredible network of family/friends that love and support us.
I’ve mentioned many times how enjoyable this journey has been for me. I feel like I’ve stretched myself, attempting and doing things that I had always wanted to try. I think this journey has helped give me confidence to not be afraid to try new things.
I say this because I think the most important thing I’ve learned in this journey is how important living an abundant life is to me. I talked about this a few weeks ago, in a post, and it continues to resonate with me.
I want an abundant life.
I want more in my relationship with God, more in my relationship with Darlene, my kids, family, and friends. I want to be healthier, stronger, and happier. I think this journey these past 28 weeks has helped in making this happen.
Bring on the next five weeks, I’m ready to give it a go.
Thanks for following me on my journey.
