Alright before we edit the competition video to make me look cooler than I am... Here's the truth. Some of you have followed my training for these lunges. Suffice it to say that the entire process tested my resolve, my perseverance, my physical and mental tenacity. The lunges came at the very end of the competition for me. Going into the event I didn't know if realistically I had a single one in the tank. I had to tell myself, "I don't care what happens. I'm going to try. I'm going to do my best. And I'm not going to quit." I finished last place in this event and you know what? I couldn't be happier. There's no shame or regret from walking away from something knowing that you gave it a 100% best effort. I can't thank everybody enough for the cheers, the love and support. You kept me in there reminding me that it's my responsibility to push myself beyond reasonable limits so that others can say, "If he can do that, I can do whatever the fuck I want." My eternal gratitude. Now go and have the best day of your life!! WOO!! Derek Weida Have you worked out today?
