Kara swinging kettlebells – why are all of our pictures of kettlebell WODs?!

We've posted this before, but it deserves another go. On the drive to the Rocky Mountain Sectional Games this year, Gino paraphrased this quote to get my head in the right place. I've read it often since then. For me it gives motivation. It inspires.  It validates. It provides comfort. It says it all. What does it say to you? 

The Man in the Arena – Theodore Roosevelt

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

  1. i am SOO jealous i don’t get to do this WOD. but seriously, i may have to come in on my own one day and do it! even if i can’t do half the workouts haha. good luck tomorrow!

  2. i didn’t 🙁 i was SO close!! Jon got many failed attempts on video sadly haha. But next week! at this point i’m just sore and need a day of rest! have a good weekend!

  3. GINO!!! Why you trying to kill my sister, yo?!? That was one big chunk of flesh that she lost. Dianne loved you guys and the box. I think she’ll try to drop by more often.

  4. Juli, great effort. You will get it soon! Jenn, I felt soo bad for her, that was a bad tear. She is tough however, she finished that difficult WOD with a great attitude, where most would have hung it up. I was happy they stopped in. It was a pleasure to meet your sis and Diane. They did great! Did she have to go in for stitches?
