With a sore throat and a tear still in my eye, I’ve finally come down from the high to tell the tale of last nights 13.1 open wod at Trident.
Like the 300 odd Spartans led by Leonidas, defending the ‘Hot Gates’ in the battle of Thermopylae, the Titans of Trident stood before the barbell. An epic battle…
Gladiators battling not only burpees & the mighty barbell, but themselves. Reaching deeper inside than they have before, going to a place seldom seen by their own eyes and never before the masses, they emerged victorious. Cheered and motivated by their peers until the 17th minute ticked off the clock, they lay in carnage, panting for breath, covered in sweat, snot and for some blood, they await the high fives from their warriors that went before them, some cried, everyone smiled in the feeling of accomplishment and the knowing that today I did more than I thought they could.
A few Titans are awaiting their time to slay the dragon of fear, the obstacles of self doubt that will set them on a path of self discovery and the feeling that they can accomplish anything. the battle of 13.1 will continue for three more days for those who have yet to fight.
A few have yet to sign up for their time to slay the first of five dragons, but time is plenty as Sunday is the last day to sign up.
