Third times a charm…right?

Lots of things pass through my head in the late evening after a long day up at the gym. Everything from random ideas for marketing to an unreached market to another way to cue a movement to help someone learn. I often struggle with remembering all these things and for some reason, mainly being hard-headed, refuse to write them down. (I think I am going to change this…its a character flaw.)

For many reasons, last Monday was a remarkable day in my book. We added 9 names to the potential client list, finished our insurance paper work on Lindsey’s own CF affiliate (CrossFit Flower Mound) and I officially qualified for my 3rd straight birth in the CrossFit Games South Central Regional event. Although extremely small in comparison to changing the lives of the nine potential members, qualifying for Regionals this year was a huge accomplishment.

Laying in bed Tuesday night, scratching my dogs belly, I realized how important this journey has been. I thought all the way back to 7th grade football, high school sports and my brief college career. I replayed so many different scenarios and thought about the “what if’s?” But I was continually reminded of how I am a much different athlete now that I was then. I was also reminded of how I am a different person, yet the same personality.

While comparing me with my youthful self, I began a list of the main differences between the two. Finding these differences led to this post. I knew this was something I needed to write down, reflect on and then build on.

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing different components which have let to some success of mine. The first will this week and touch on nutrition and recovery.

  1. You must. write. them. down!!! I suffer from the same thing…great ideas…then never write them down. Keep the good ideas and changes coming, David. You and Lindsey are doing great things at CFDC and I’m sure will do the same at CFFM!! That’s so exciting!! you guys should share more about it! I think our house is exactly, right smack dab in the middle of both of them. 🙂

  2. Congratulations Dave! I know you’ve worked so hard to get where you are today in all areas of your life. Just look at how far you’ve come, and what lies ahead.

    Can’t wait to see you compete in Houston. I’ll be there cheering away! I know you’re going to do great.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. Thanks Terri! With so much going on this year, I was actually going to sit the spring out and not do the Open. Maybe relieving some pressure from myself helped me do well.

  4. It’s great that you are remembering what once was but now what is. You have come a long way Dave. Glad I have been there to see part of your journey.
