As some say around these parts…Penblwydd Hapus you lovely buggers you!!
8 long years ago I opened the doors of CrossFit Cardiff (albeit a different door to where we currently are), very tired and very afraid that: it would all fail; no one one show up; and if they did they would likely die if they decided to use one of the GHDs that I had finished building at 3 o’clock that morning. A significant number of bolts were currently residing in the bush outside.
But I need not have worried, the place was packed, from start to finish. People came from all over the country to see our little box, throw down with us and drink a beer or ten. Fight Gone Bad, my first ever workout, and the first that was ever coached at the gym. Utter carnage ensued. Not just for that day but for the next 8 years, we have all learnt, grown, succeeded and failed, but are still smiling and trying to improve.
We are truly blessed to have such an amazing box, full of utter legends doing wonderful things on a daily basis! And because of that place, I wake up everyday feeling safe.
Thank you all, drink a beer or ten! Here’s to another year of happiness.
Apologies if the above is a little disjointed, I have a possessed puppy who is currently running rings around me.
