It is easy to focus on the outcome of this competition and forget about the journey. While, many will get lost in the result and hopefully utilize it as motivation for future competitions, I will remind you of the path it took to get your here.
We had five teams compete in this competition, many of the women competing were stepping on the competition floor for the very first time. It is no easy feat, and it should be applauded. Again, the journey is often forgotten. Many competitors forget that this is a new endeavor, even though some have been doing it for a couple of years now. The workouts in this competition included a dumbell snatch, high repetition hang cleans, these are complex movements and far away from the ellipticals and treadmills that are the first thought when it comes to women and fitness.
This is a new era, this is an amazing journey if you allow it to be. We are proud of our girls, each and every one of you.
