December, 2010. Coach Saenz, Chardonnay, Firas and Mark.
This month marks my 7-year anniversary coaching CrossFit, and my 8-year anniversary since beginning CrossFit.
I’m grateful for having found something that brings me such fulfillment and has brought me some of the best friends and richest experiences I could ask for.
Looking at 7 years, I realize too quickly that I am still a baby coach. There are men and women out there who have been coaching for as long as I’ve been alive. The key is in always continuing to learn, remaining humble and seeking out new people, places and ways of doing things that will challenge you and push you into the next era.
I believe we are on the cusp of something special with this year’s training. More details to come…
