Written after completing 18.5 of the Crossfit Open at my gym Solcana Fitness. It’s an inspiring and lovely place in this world. It has helped me to cultivate greater confidence in myself, as an athlete and as a person who loves herself. 

 

I am a vessel of strength.

The grip of the bar

and the thrust of the weight

are proof of my power.

 

I am a pillar of confidence.

Bright colored tank

and high waisted shorts

are my uniform of choice.

 

Lean in, listen close.

There’s a steady footfall

matching pace with breath,

quickening in stride.

 

Look, look at me now.

A runner in solitude

shoulders back, elbows sharp

gliding through city streets.

 

I can see. I can feel.

The blood in my veins surge

with a heated propulsion,

an awakening to what’s inside.

 

There is something there.

My chest and heart unite

with an open surrender

to the inevitable pain and sweat.

 

I am a vessel of strength.
I am a pillar of confidence.

Lean in, listen close

and look.

Look at me now.

I can see. I can feel.

There is something there.
