Nerves...

They are starting to kick in. Last night I spent ohhhh at least a few hours watching videos from the CrossFit site of girls that have competed in various regional qualifiers like I am this weekend. Oh my goodness, I'm starting to feel like I might be totally out of my league. I'm not going in with huge expectations, but I do expect myself to do well...whether that means I qualify or not who knows! I just want to feel good about my performance. Trust me, I am a competitor. When it comes down to it I want to win. I don't enjoy getting beat by anyone. Kody is trying to psych me up. It is kind of working, but the more I think about it the more I can't stop thinking about it and then I just over analyze. I have no idea what to expect. This is completely new and unknown, which also makes it really exciting.

For those of you who are a bit confused about what I am talking about, this weekend is the Southwest Regional Qualifier for the CrossFit games in Fort Worth, Texas. The top five men and women will qualify to compete in the CrossFit games in Aromas, California in July. I'm competing against others from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri. I've been CrossFitting for almost ten months. You can go here to learn more about the CrossFit games and see information about the regional. It is less than five days away now...oh my.

By the way...Kody and I still miss the girls. Our house is so empty without Annie and Kinsey. We are still glad they found their home, but we miss cuddling with them!

You'll do great Ginny! I know what you mean about the nerves...I didn't sleep well the entire week leading up to the half marathon because I couldn't stop thinking about it. I always thought my nerves would go away after I stopped competing in college and then I could just run to 'have fun' and not to win. YEAH RIGHT!! Fun = Winning :)
