The more difficult a victory, the greater the happiness in winning. - Pele'



I started playing soccer when I was four years old. I played every minute I can remember until I was 15. It was the coolest thing I could conceive and Pele' was the undisputed king of the soccer world. If someone told me he could fly and breathe fire I would have believed it. In fourth grade I wrote a report on my sports hero. In it I remember reading that they hooked Pele' up to some machines and measured his heart and determined ( in the book for 4th grade physiologist) that his supremacy was related to his incredible heart and lung capacity. I wanted those super powers so I started watching the movie Victory everyday and began running around the neighborhood bare foot kicking things an bicycle kicking anything I could. I'm not so sure I can bring this back to CrossFit or todays WOD but I read this quote the other day and was struck at how simple it is and how this sentiment has probably been uttered by just about every successful person in history. Embrace the climb and enjoy the view.
