That overly giddy feeling

It has been a while.

But I'm finally giddy again.


Well, silly, I got a spot for FrostFit in Winnipeg! The last FrostFit has some of my favorite CrossFit competition memories ever. I love traveling with the team, I love wearing my team bunnyhug, and I love competing in the name of good times and good friends.

Beyond that, I love progress. I don't know how I'll stack up against the competition this year, but that part doesn't really matter. What does matter, is I know I can do a lot more now than I could last year; it's going to be fun to go into this competition and give it my all once again. Plus, we won't be staying at the Marlborough, so something tells me I'll be operating on a bit more sleep this year. Maybe. ;) I think the only reason I slept last year is because Tron was willing to check under my bed for monsters and all things sketchy. Thankfully, there were none. So many fabulous memories.

On the basis of so many fabulous memories from FrostFit, I find myself giddy and incredibly excited to make more. It looks like there will be a lot of Synergy folk making the trip this January, so laughter and good times are guaranteed. Can't wait.

Otherwise, I haven't posted forever, and for that I'm sorry. I've been living in my academic hole and paying attention to nothing other than school, work, working out, eating, and breathing. (Oh, and I think maybe some sleeping in there somewhere too). As much as things have been crazy, I am proud to say that I have still been giving the gym my best effort. I did miss a couple of weeks in there due to being sick, but sometimes life happens.

I have been enjoying being a part of the HIIT study taking place at the gym; it's always a good time when Fran and Cindy come out back-to-back followed by a lovely wingate. I'm sure we all agree, haha. Oh, yes. Good times, indeed. Sarcasm aside, you have to love the personal records. It is awesome to check the PR group on Facebook and see numerous posts every evening from awesome folks at the gym detailing their epic successes. Even with having missed the chunk I did, I was absolutely shocked and pumped to get personal records on almost everything we re-tested. So yeah, I am pretty happy with life all in all right now. It's awesome to be a part of a community that's so dedicated to personal fitness as well as to a team atmosphere. Awesomeness radiates at Synergy.

On that note, sorry for the most random blog post that has ever existed on this blog. That's what happens when you wait ten years in between posts. Lesson learned. ;)

Anyway, moving right along, as we all are heading into the holiday season, let's remember to be thankful for what we have, where we're going, and remember to enjoy the awesome moments along the way.
