I started Crossfit with a friend from work.  He was in shape but he didn’t look anything more than that.  I heard him talk about Crossfit ALL the time and so I figured I’d give it a shot… hoping to beat him, to shut him up.  Needless to say, he beat me in the first few workouts and I couldn’t believe it.  Over time it began meaning more to me than beating people and it was about making myself better than the day before.  I have been “hooked” ever since
