We're re-posting a piece we wrote and put up on the site once before. We have a group of folks that post frequently yet there are still many who do not. There are several reasons why we want you to share. Read on....
Nothing has changed since saying this once before. I still love the time I get to spend with athletes before and after WODs discussing what’s on their mind about their training and TCF experiences. In one of the latest conversations, I had the chance to talk with someone about people sharing their WOD numbers in the comment section of our site. This athlete revealed that he posts to help him feel more a part of the community and his comment really caught my attention. I thought about it more and would like to share a few things with everyone as a result. This athlete shares his numbers to help him feel part of the community yet how can he feel a part when so many do not post and share? Hmmm… did I just strike a cord with you? Take a moment, answer this question and be totally honest. Why don’t you post? Is it because you don’t think your numbers are good enough? Let me tell you. They’re good enough. The fact that you come here and participate in this type of training in the first place says something about you and everyone here understands and respects what you’ve done. Is it because you don’t want to post unless your time, number of rounds, or weight put up in the air is the best? Well, get over that. On any given day, you may be the best but you won’t be the best every day. The variety of CrossFit exercises and the variance of the WODs themselves will reveal everyone’s strengths and weaknesses. That’s a fact as well as part of the beauty of CrossFit. So don’t be of the mindset that you should only post if you’re part of the top tier. Post because it helps others realize that they too can do this. Post because it helps others see the possibilities. Post because it supports this invisible chain of connection we have with one another. Post because you’re a part of the TCF community and you are an inspiration to others. Post.
