I don't remember all of the details, I do know I was on the back end of a five day bender. I had just woken up in some seedy motel room 15 miles out of town with my nose pierced and there was distinctive bite marks on my forehead. I can't say it was the worst Tuesday morning I had that month but something inside of me just said enough is enough. It was time to clean up my act. After that I tried a lot of the "fad" exercises and weight loss schemes...mud wrestling, strip poker, the shake weight, the blizzard of the month club at DQ but nothing seemed to work. Anyway, I was on my way to buy 400 gallons of sulfuric acid (it's a long story...but a doozy!) in the commercial district in my town when I came across our local crossfit gym. The people seemed real friendly but one gym regular kept referring to it as the "box". I thought he was sassing me and I damn near punched his mouth loose then and there but I choose to bide my time and give him the old surprise attack one evening a few weeks later. Well crossfit came real easy for me. Mind you most of my training consisted of arm wrestling my 9 year old daughter and her friends. Most of them I could beat quite handily but there were a few hefty ones (I don't think they did crossfit though) that gave me a run for my money. I'm not kidding I did have some wagers on the outcome to keep it interesting. Anyway, I'm sure my story is the same as so many of you out there so I won't go on and on. I'm not going to lie to you, I think I have a shot at winning this whole thing. In fact, I will be downright disappointed if I don't. It all comes down to getting wods that are in your wheelhouse. If the wods consist of arm wrestling children, skulking in the shadows to scare the elderly, barking loudly at dogs for no reason whatsoever and cursing at my tv whenever my favorite dart player fails to bull out, well this little competition is over Jack.
