Light The Fire!

By There are no tags 1 comments
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” 
 
– Albert Schweitzer
 
I spent the weekend hosting and interning with the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar. It was inspiring to see so many new people looking to increase their knowledge of CrossFit and fitness. I am grateful for opportunities to remember what it was the first time I attended a Level 1 Seminar way back in 2004. I am grateful to each of you that comes in and trains day in and day out to improve. It inspires me to get better. It’s thrilling!
 
Who has lit your flame lately? Have you thanked them?
