Ralph Waldo Emerson

Read “Terminus” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Though sound nutrition advice is an essential part of a person’s progress from sickness to wellness to health, nutrition licensure laws often prevent professional trainers from sharing such lifesaving information. CrossFit Level 2 Trainer Heather Kokesch Del Castillo was fined and threatened with jail time if she continued to provide nutritional advice in Florida. CrossFit, Inc. supported Del Castillo as she filed a First Amendment lawsuit with the Institute for Justice challenging the restriction of her free speech. A federal court in Florida rejected the suit on tenuous grounds on July 17, 2019. Del Castillo’s attorneys are appealing the decision, with the support of CrossFit, Inc., which remains committed to protecting its affiliates’ and trainers’ rights to speak freely about the foundational elements of the CrossFit methodology and human health.

There is a timed factor in all things. All aspects of life have a clock and the finality or ending phase exists in all aspects and chores and events. I have never read Emerson before tonight and now I must ask myself why? I think I should re read it a few times and some other works but I really enjoyed it. I feel that he touches the powerful aspect of an emotional ending, of something meaningful closing itS final chapter. It read as both eloquent and sophisticated and also warm and common a the same time. .

I loved the games. It is not easy to finish at a place less than you trained for or had expectations for. I am a masters athlete, and no where near the elite level that participate in the games so you can take this with a grain of salt. I was, however a Marine who served his time, and no what it is like to face a 'performance on demand' scenario. To all those who missed the cut, and have not 'come out to give an opinion' on the new format I applaud you. To those who did not make the cut and have 'come out to give and opinion' and owned up to their performance I applaud you even louder. To those who have not made the cut and have 'come out to give an opinion' and whinge about the format I will use you as a tool to teach my granddaughter what not to be like when 'things don't go exactly your way.' Just the love/hate relationship one gets with CrossFit after 9+ years. Peace
