Why I Compete Every Day
FAITH. WORK. HEALTH. DREAMS. RELATIONSHIPS. WHAT DO YOU COMPETE EVERY DAY FOR?
"Competing every day means to live every day like it’s your last chance to reach your goals; hit that new PR, lose that extra 5lbs, run one more mile, etc. Whatever it may be, be BETTER than you were the day before." - Jenae, Fitness competitor
“Why do I compete: I could say I compete because some motivational quote you’ve no doubt seen 10 times, but I’m going to be real. 4 years ago my father was diagnosed with a rare terminal brain disease called MSA (multiple system atrophy.). I wrestled up to college and my freshman year. My dad took so much pride in watching me compete. Crossfit has filled the void of competitive spots in my life and has given my dad something else to take pride in. Through he can’t watch me, he gets videos and pictures about all of my competitive updates. Competing for me is a release. It helps me cope and it helps me process. I compete for someone who can’t. I compete for him. I compete for my dad.” - Ryan, Professional Grid League Athlete
"I compete for others who are working towards their long term goals, whatever they may be. We live in a “now” world. People want “instant” everything from mac ‘n cheese to fitness results. And when people don’t see these results right away they get frustrated, lose motivation, and sometimes even end up quitting." - Chris, Spartan Race competitor
"I compete because I can’t imagine a life of settling with mediocrity. Life is too short to just be average. Be extraordinary! Push yourself, overcome impossible obstacles, inspire others, and become the very best version of you." - Morgan, CrossFit Games Regional Athlete
