I’m not elite. I’m not even average. I’m the everyday athlete struggling to get fit.
I stare at the drops of sweat that pool on the black mat. Tonight, we are doing squat cleans and bar-over burpees. I wonder how many drops I have contributed so far. I cough lightly and laugh at myself. I hear coach Molly proclaim there are five minutes left in this workout.
What am I doing here?
