Sweat and Tears

Until about 7:05pm today, I had never cried during a work out.

I have tried the gamut of workout routines: from yoga to running to group exercise to boot camp. Nothing has made me work as hard as CrossFit does. Nothing has had me in tears trying to take my last round of push ups deeper, or finish my workout in under 6 minutes.

But nothing has ever made me feel as proud of myself, of the strength of my body, of my ability to keep pushing after I felt I should have been done.

I officially drank the kool-aid. And I like it.
