Well, the CrossFit Games 2013 Open has finally come to an end.  I am seriously proud of everyone who participated. Many of you put on some incredible performances and pushed yourselves well beyond your comfort zone. And because of that, lots of new PRs (personal records) were hit along the way. Regardless of how you ranked worldwide, you should be happy that you even did it. It takes courage to compete. Did you notice how competing can put your performance on an entirely different level? Anyway, keep working hard at the gym and when you do it again next year, I promise you’ll do better. Like I tell everyone who is new to CrossFit: if you put in the work, you only get better. Getting worse is not an option. So here’s to next year!
