‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS ….
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Box
Not a creature was stirring, not even Buddy;
The plates were all stacked by the barbells with care,
In hopes that CrossFitters soon would be there;
The Athletes were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of vegetables danced in their heads;
And mauree in herLulu Lemon leggings, and I in my beanie,
Had just downloaded workout songs, mostly bad rap,
When out in the lot there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the office to see what was the matter.
Away to the bay door I flew like a flash,
I opened the lock and pulled it up fast.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a Big Bob push-sled stacked with plates to your ears,
With a rugged old power lifter, lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. (or maybe just Nick Hoggan)
Stronger than Ron Coleman and twice as great,
He whistled, and shouted, and called out “Light Weight!”;
From the top of the driveway! to the end of the street!
He pushed that sled around with lightning quick feet!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So out to the Interstate throwing sparks out the back,
With the sled stacked so heavy the roadway had cracked.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
I saw piles of new equipment spread over the ground.
And I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Merry CrossFit to All and to All a
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”
Words from a children’s book, but words that reach far beyond.
It’s easy to get caught up in “life”.
To be so focused on chasing our next goal. Hunting that next accomplishment.
Dr. Suess gives us a grounding thought: to value the present. To appreciate the moments in front of us, despite how tempting it may be to look ahead. In today’s world, we’re moving faster than ever. Planning more than ever. Forecasting more than ever. But in all the plans that we could possibly dream up, regardless of how big and audacious as they may be, they do not create memories. Only today can.
