Silver Lining: Determination – CrossFit

WP Daily Prompt: Write about something you consider “ugly” — war, violence, failure, hatred — but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

My son advanced to compete in a state level CrossFit competition. CrossFit consist of “constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity”. Any and everyone can take part in CrossFit, you just have to possess the determination to complete what you start.

I did a workout with the team, felt the burn (oh, did it ever burn), and made “ugly faces”, but afterwards I felt like I accomplished something. It’s hard work, but the silver lining in all this is….it is so worth it.

During the competition I saw the remnants of two Kettlebells laying on the ground, broken…how in the world do you break an all cast-iron Kettlebell? (picture included in collage)
