Games Streamed Live on ESPN3

Catch all the World Games action next week on ESPN 3! Yeah, that’s right, CrossFit on ESPN.  The action starts Friday. Coverage is LIVE and highlights will stream at 9pm.
Signs you may be a CrossFitter…

1.  You tell a woman after the workout, “You’re a beast!” and she wholeheartly says “Thank you!”
2. The first 5 sites  your computer screen has on it each morning after you boot it up are CrossFit sites.
3.  Your shins have more scrapes  and bruises than a twelve year old boy (mainly due to thinking that someone changed your box height between your warm up and after your first round). 
4.  You know better than to say, “That looks easy.” 
5.  You’ve spent HOURS watching videos of other people working out (who does that?) 
6.  CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe. 
7.  When you travel, your first concern is if there is a local affiliate close by. 
8.  You must WOD with loud music that annoys everyone that goes in the tag office and the movie store, but never hear a word of it. 
9.  You don’t bite your nails, you pick your callouses. 
10.  You talk about WODS, Snatches, Thrusters, and Jerking, and know that none of these have anything to do with sex. 
11.  You consider other CrossFitter’s family. 
12.  Refresh is your favorite button after 9pm.
13. 3 on 1 off takes priority in your schedule.
14.  There are days you have to talk yourself OUT of going to the gym because it’s a rest day and that means you are suppose to rest, right? You are confused at this and ask your coach if you can still go for a run. When they tell you rest means rest, still confused, you ask if that means you should do nothing or could you do…?
15.  You shave your hands. 
16. Almond butter is the nectar of the Gods.
17.  You think in blocks not calories.
18.  You don’t remember what it is like to have mirrors in your gym.
19. You start worrying more about how deep your squats are than how heavy they are.
20.   You workout in a box, not a gym.
21.  Someone stares at you with a “you’re craaaaaazzzzzyyy” look after you describe your WOD.
22.  You find yourself bragging to people how sore you are.
23.  You talk about being “broke down” and your fellow CrossFitters know your car is fine.
24.  You have priced a kettlebell online.
25.  Memories of doing preacher curls in front of a mirror in your old gym leave you feeling uneasy and embarrassed.
