The Will to Survive

Crossfit Games 2010 – World’s Fittest For me the Crossfit Games is something that is now on my calendar, so to speak. There really is no decision whether or not I’ll go.

It sticks in my throat a bit to use the word graduation anywhere other than from high school. I truly cannot stand Kindergarten graduations and 8th grade seems a little contrived […]
