Wow!

I am just in awe right now. We have by far the best community I have ever seen, heard, or been a part of. You are the Champion's Club! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am extremely humbled by your support. I'm just at a loss for words.

 

Marianne, Christina, Jackie, Alyssa, Rachael. Champion's Club.

When I think about how much we have grown and how crazy this past year has been, I can't help but be proud to be a part of it every day. We've got little tykes and beastly moms and everything in between, but we all come together when the timer starts and we share the same experience (some days are better than others). Everyone in the champion's club is a part of my family, and I can't imagine how it would be if anyone was missing. If we can get through Fran and the filthy fifty, this should be a cakewalk, right? I am a strong believer in this community, and no matter what happens I know as long as we stick together nothing is impossible.

I agree. I'd rather deal with this than do Fight Gone Bad any day. You won't catch me doing that workout again. I just wish more people on the outside understood this part: "I can't imagine how it would be if anyone was missing."

The typist peers suspiciously to the left and right. The computer screen glows in the dark of the night. One last look over the shoulder and the typist's fingers begin to strike in unison, in solidarity:

This is a hard pill to swallow. The ironic thing about the whole situation is that the negatve influences have been given a cloak of invisibility and thus the typist has decided to use one also today; the internet. Sadly, the tiny chorus of haters has drowned out the steady hum of productivity. The naysayers think they are making things better, but ultimately their actions are slowly constricting and crunching everything to fit into their narrow minded view.

From the movie "V is for Vendetta":

"Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof."

The Champion's Club started as a simple idea (coaching+crossfit=community) and that can't be taken away.

In their defense, we sort of have a narrow-minded veiw as well.

We have a goal - achieve excellence. Excellence for both us and Bishop Foley. Every decision we have made came from the mindset of, "is this going to make us better? Is this going to make our product better, and therefore, the school's product better?" We are so focussed on this that we often just ignore any outside deterrant. Like, if you aren't saying something constructive, then it's not worth our attention. We don't have time for that. "We're too busy training."

So maybe in the midst of this, we missed something. I personally don't think we did. But it's obviously a possibility.

fact:
The Champion's Club will continue to show great integrity by not letting it affect the quality of training and the effort we put out
