Unstoppable

You can beat me. But not defeat me.

I will dial myself in. I will focus.

You can run faster than me. But you cannot run truer.

I will learn to sprint. And to slow my pace for recovery.

You can post higher PR numbers than me on every whiteboard that exists in this world. But your weights really only mean something to you, not to me. You can lift more than me. In rubber or iron. Today. But not in life. I am my own yardstick.

I will breathe deep and take this burden from the ground to my shoulders. And then over my head. But I will put it back down and walk away from it. It does not own me.

Although we pen our efforts for everyone to see, I was never competing with you to begin with. I am trying to be a better version of me, every single workout and every single day. You only help me to get there. Thank you. I hope my efforts drive you harder too.

But make no mistake, you can never defeat me.

It’s simply not possible.

I am unstoppable.

You write so well, I am always so impressed and so motivated. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I find myself thinking about some of your phrases right before a WOD, trying to center in on whats really important. Not the whiteboards not the other athletes, but how I can drive myself to a better me. Thanks again!!

I needed this. Three weeks ago I learned that my wife cheated on me. The amazing thing is, I still love her and want to keep her as my wife. But I have had a very rough few weeks. Thanks for posting this.

BINGO! I have already copied, printed and taped this onto the cover of my WOD book so I never forget what my goals really are. Thanks Lis!

Well said Lis...if only you could get others to understand the meaning of this.....unfortunately they can't even count so expecting them to be deep would be ridiculous...
