Inspiring Others

Inspiring Others

This is one of my dearest and closest friends, Diane McNeil. I love this girl! When “Dmac” began her CrossFit journey, she disliked box jumps. For the longest time, she opted for step ups. Then one day she decided to go for it. (Actually, Coach Mav “persuaded” her to do it.) She began box jumping. As you can see, this tire was no match for her. She is currently jumping on a 20 inch box, consistently every time. Well, except one time. It was a brand new one, he didn’t know any better. She cursed at it one time and came back with a vengeance. Every time she thinks she can’t, I see her pause look for a second and BAM! She does it.

This past Monday, I watched her box jump during a WOD and I had to look away just so she would not see me cry. It was like watching my little girl walk for the first time. She was doing it! So proud!

There are so many other success stories at our box. All of them have one thing in common. Someone is inspiring others to do the unthinkable, the unimaginable. That is the amazing thing about this sport I love.

One thought on “Inspiring Others

  1. First response is “I need a tissue ’cause you’ve got me crying”. Next is that Cross Fit has made me realize you cannot stay in one one place and expect change. Cross Fit constantly challenges you both mentally and physically and really tests you at every level. But I love it and am forever grateful to “Foy” for bringing me in to the family and coaching me along. I love you Shellane!
