Josh Bridges, Jon Pera, & Jeremy Kinnick – Walking to the Podium for the 2011 CrossFit Games – Southern California Regional. Josh took 1st, Jon 2nd, and I took 3rd place.

“Yes, but the main thing is that greatness is doable. Greatness is many, many individual feats, and each of them is doable.” 

― Angela DuckworthGrit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

This realization, that greatness is doable, that greatness is individual feats repeated over and over and over again.  This gives us hope.  It gives anyone who believes this statement hope that they can accomplish something great by simply working at it.  Often times we think the great ones are GREAT because of something magical.  When really its a repeatable process.  So then the challenging part is having the endurance to continue and PERSEVERE.
