Congrats to those of you who competed yesterday. Great times, great people and some great efforts. The results from the competition will dictate who is competing on our teams for the Liberty Box League in the fall. We still have a couple more people vying for spots who could not make it on Saturday and as these people finish theirs qualifiers we will update you.
Those of you that missed yesterday, you missed a great day and a great opportunity to push yourself. While not for everyone, competition is for more people than know it. You may surprise yourself what you can accomplish in the right environment.

We all say we want it.
But do you really?
Do you want it as badly as you want to breathe?
Do you plan for it? Do you work for it?
Because success doesn’t come easy. It isn’t hand delivered to your doorstep.
The key to success is consistency, it is the ability to show up day after day, no matter what the weather is like, no matter what your schedule is like and no matter what your excuses are.
The key to success is the work you do when you can’t yet see the results. It is the work you do when you are having a bad day.
The key to success is the struggle.
It is the struggle that makes you stronger, the struggle to stamp out the little voice in your head yelling at you to stop, the struggle to hang on to the bar for one more rep, the struggle to achieve success.
Stop dreaming about the success you want and start getting at it, start chipping away at the huge pile of work ahead of you, because on the other side lies success.
But there are no shortcuts.
There are no easy or well worn paths to take.
There is no way to cheat yourself there.
The only way to get there is to show up, work your ass off and leave your excuses in the dog house.
Success isn’t pretty, so stop thinking it will be. It will be covered in sweat, pain, tears and misery.
But you can wash all that off when you get there.
