Apparently, it wasn’t that important to us. Maybe we were bored, confused, frustrated, and in looking for a balm …

Taz Barber Brain Gainz, No Filter Fitness

My friends were the type of CrossFitters who were breaking barriers (and the internet) like every other week. It was a lot to live up to. Sorta like how a doctor feels as if they can never be sick because that would reflect poorly on their knowledge or skill, …
