It’s looking like next weekend I’ll be packing a cooler, a bag and my essential equipment and road tripping to Washington, DC. Why you ask? To train with the best….literally. Christy Philips has invited me to come do a triple wod Saturday with her, Julie F. and a few other badass chicks from the area. With The Games less than 6 weeks away, I’d be crazy to pass that offer up.
So yes, I’ll be driving 6.5 hours to get my as* handed to me. I know that some people are obesssed with being the best, having the fastest time or using the heaviest weight. Me, I’m all about self improvement. If every day I’m a little bit stronger than I was the day before my day was a success. So to have the opportunity to train with someone that I know is stronger than me I know I’ll get better as a result.
It will also give me a chance to get my feet on the ground. I really think that being in DC, training with Julie and Christy the reality of the situation will set in. This isn’t just a fun story to tell, this isn’t something that’s going to happen some day….it’s only 6 weeks away and coming at me like a freight train.
