But the greatest treasure I have discovered in CrossFit has not to do with any physical accomplishments I might have made, but rather in the sense of being I have found here. For within these walls lies a special community, one that speaks for whatever abilities you walk through these doors with each day, we will all rise together. For what we accomplish together is much greater than any of us as individuals, and on those days you can not find it in yourself. We are all as one in our community and as such we are responsible to and for each other... and for this, I thank you all.
