I hate pictures or video of myself. In my mind, i am so much better looking. I've never been afraid to look like a fool... Which has allowed me the freedom to try a lot of different things. Unfortunately, I've never actually been excellent at any of those things. That's the beauty of CrossFit, no need to be a master of everything....just proficient at most. At the end of the day... I am just trying to not suck at life.
