Inspiration...tee shirts are in and my eyes are on the finish line!

Sometimes you feel a lull in your training...an empty feeling of "why am I doing this?" passes through your mind. If you can get past this, trust in yourself and keep going, I gaurantee something will pop up and put the wind back in your sails. This post is about inspiration. Messages like this inspire me...now I have more to be hopeful for...our tee shirts are in! You can now get involved in this fundraiser to honor Amanda and join the fight against cancer. 100% of the proceeds are going to skin cancer research in her name. The link is on the left.

"Hey Dave,

I just wanted to drop a line. I found your blog and saw it was dedicated to Amanda Miller and I continued to read. I became friends with Amanda shortly after she came to Crossfit Ventura and she was a great person and a good friend. I just wanted to say that as a friend of Amanda, I think that your blog truly inspirational. Thank you for raising awareness and keeping the memory of Amanda alive."

  1. Dave,

    You have inspired me to squat everyday as part of my daily hour of weakness. While I never met Amanda I can appreciate your commitment to remembering her in a way that I am sure she would love. Keep up the good work and Thanks.

  2. Inspiring and amazing feat. It's quite the tribute to Amanda and to raise awareness. I was more than happy to buy one of the T-shirts. Keep it up Dave!
