I’m confused: What college team in Utah does Paul support?

Today was one of those days that reminds me why we do this crazy CrossFit thing.  First I watched Bob attempt to clean and jerk the Rx’ed load 20 times before he finally got his 3rd rep.  Then he raced to the bar and got the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Toes to bar of his entire life in the remaining 20 seconds.  Next up was Steph B who’s been CrossFitting exactly 6 weeks.  She flat out told me right before the WOD started “I can’t do this.”  Then she proceeded to PR by 30lbs and clean and jerk the women’s Rx’ed load!  Marion:  She had never done a toes to bar before and while we were warming up didn’t get one.  When the 7 minutes had ended she’d made it through her round of 3, 6, and 9!  Watching Jackie and Danny go head to head and both scoring in the 90’s.  And last of all watching Zach kill it with a score of 101 all the while doing toes to bar weighing 250lbs.

CrossFit is a microcosm of real life.  Dealing with doubt, uncertainty, and overcoming obstacles.  In a day and age when it’s respectable and expected to avoid discomfort at all costs I love waking up every day and watching our athletes come in not knowing if they can do something, trying it anyway, and walking out with a sense of pride and accomplishment that’s the real deal.  Keep it up and thank you!
