I am a CrossFit Woman

I am a CrossFit Woman
I do not wear makeup
I do not wear gloves
I do not do my hair
I do not ‘glisten’ or ‘glow’

I am a CrossFit Woman
I sweat
I grunt
I curse
I bleed

I am a CrossFit Woman
I will not shy away from failure
I will not hide me emotions
I will not quit
I will not hold back

I am a CrossFit Woman
I am a coach
I am a competitor
I am a daughter
I am a friend

I am a CrossFit Woman
I am confident
I am strong
I am beautiful
I am a CrossFit Woman

I think it’s time we start changing this pretty little box that society has put it’s little girls in.  You should wear dress adorned in lace, be quite and polite, play with dolls and learn to cook.  Ok…..so this is an extreme exageration, but there is some truth.

Soceity has this stigma that CrossFit women are breaking.  You can be strong, confident and sure of yourself and not be a bitch.  That’s right, I used the ‘B’ word.  CrossFit women are kind, compationate, empithtic and on and on and on…..because let’s face it, we’ve all been there.  We’ve all wanted to quite a wod half way through, drop the weight or take one more break, but we don’t.  Why?

Because we are CrossFit Women!

  1. Yes, you are an awesome CrossFit women with great abs, but your spelling sucks.

    Society has put ITS (not it’s) little girls…
    Be QUIET (not quite) and polite…
    this is an extreme EXAGGERATION (not exageration)
    kind, COMPASSIONATE (not compationate)

    and “empithtic”? No such word. Maybe you mean EMPATHIC or EMPATHETIC? Either one would do.

  2. Great blog! It is truly inspiring…
    It is quite sad, however, that NorthCoast missed the point completely, opting instead to focus on your spelling.

    I’m thinking, if you’re going to criticize someone’s spelling, you should make certain that yours is spot-on.

    It’s “Yes, you are an awesome CrossFit WOMAN with great abs,” not WOMEN. As much as Kate Rawlins emotionally and spiritually represents all incredible, strong, resilient CrossFit women, she is physically, one woman. 😉

    Once again, great blog, Ms. Rawlins!
    And Thank You!


  3. I am a crossfit women, and I do wear make-up, dresses, jewelry, nail polish, I highlight my hair, and even spray tan 🙂 I guess we are quite opposite!
