...And I didn't even get a T-Shirt!

I did it! I didn't think I would ever do it, but I did it! I just did CrossFit.com's WOD. It was a weakness of mine, a fear, but I did it. I just ran my first 10k! Thanks to CrossFit the cardio part was easy. My heart and my lungs felt great and were asking for more. My knee caps are a different story. The last few miles were rough but I cranked up the music and kept on pushing. Pain is weakness leaving the body. To avoid this kind of pain in the future I'll be sure to give my hamstrings a little more massage and self myofascial release, aka - foam rollers and tears!

I always assumed I would cross the 5 mile marker during a commercial "Fun Run" and to be honest, I only do those for the T-shirts... I think I'll gift myself another Crossfit Tshirt for this accomplishment. One can never have too many of those!
