Well, on a date that is fun to write (don’t lie and say you don’t like writing 1/11/11), I have a fun post to add!
Some of you may remember my “CrossFit Blog Central” post back from 12/29/10, where I posted an article from Alec Hanson – The CrossFit Gamer. In the piece, he discussed “Why you Matter Enough to Face the Pain.” I really liked the article, and commented on his post thanking him for his words.
Then I kept thinking about it, and decided I wanted to reach out again. I left Alec a Video Reply on his blog, and didn’t know what to expect… The reply wasn’t from “Smashby the Trainer/Blogger”, it was just from me. Then, while he was on vacation in Hawaii! Alec posted another video for his fans and made mention of my note, saying, “this guy Smashby sent me a great video response, so I’m going to get that on my site soon.” Alec, you’re the first human being in history to say “Smashby” from Hawaii. Congrats!
Sure enough, shortly after returning from vacation, the next Drive Time with Alec was released, and he proved to be a man of his word. Check out his latest “Drive Time” post from yesterday where he let us know he will definitely following up on his “Self Worth” topic again. (Click ahead to around 2:15 to hear his 2nd shout-out)
Here it is! Alec’s reply to my question!
Keep your eyes tuned to his blog (http://www.thecrossfitgamer.com) in the future, he posts some great stuff!
It’s really fun for me to see how far this CrossFit Community reaches out, and how connected we all can be through the internet. I hope you enjoy getting these other perspectives, too.
