WOD – TIGERSTYLE – GORUCK D8
Today is the first day of 2012. Ever think of why people always want to make a change tomorrow or in the beginning? It’s always a instinctual for humans to want to change during the beginning. I feel like each moment should be an opportunity to better yourself. Today was no exception for me. Yesterday was a full rest day even had some brie cake and meat at night with noodles. I usually do an active rest but I wanted to enjoy some hearty food. Today’s I started my WOD with a nice run. Felt heavy and even used my new Brooks shoes. They felt comfy but still need to break them in. Anyway, today as I ran I started to think of my evolution within a year. I started from pushing myself pass the comfort zone to someone who got comfortable with it. As I look at myself compared to a year ago and see the lose skin and marks I acknowledge all the full effort I put in myself. Lots of stretchmarks, but they are not a sign of me losing the weight they are the sign of my evolution. I am a Goddamn tiger and they are my stripes I earned. All of my change through hard work and never letting anything and anyone, including myself to say “I Can’t” do it. I went through my changes in 2011 from being part of the wolf pack and then a komodo dragon during mud runs. But today I realize I am a tora, a tiger. A tiger is a symbol of might, dangerous predator that humans fear as well as respect, and power. All my battles in life and my changes matches the tiger’s characteristics and with this I prowl forward and embrace my evolution. 2012 may be the year of the Ryuu (Dragon) but it will always be the year of me. Each year that passes is not a marking of the calendar, my age but another year to better myself and inspire everyone around me. I am transforming to a tora (tiger) during my journey to Goruck. Today I am at 181lbs, time to get myself down to 165lbs. Ok readers enjoy your day and remember to embrace the moment. I’m off to a Polar Bear dip in the Atlantic Ocean later so this day has just begun for me.
