Why I signed up for the CrossFit Games Open

No, it's not because I think I will be among the top 60 females in my region to advance on to Regionals. Or that I will even be the top female from my box. And NO, I am not stronger than I was when I competed last year.  After a cycling accident in which I broke my collar bone {and ended up having surgery}, I took off 4 months {June-October}from Crossfit to heal and then focus on running.  I feared injury, and because I had already missed competing in the triathlon I was training for, I didn't want to do anything that would put me at risk of getting injured again.  I'm still building up to where I was.  

So why am I  competing in the open? I know that with every rep during the Open WODs I will become stronger, both physically & mentally, and will push myself beyond what I ever thought was imaginable.  It's a chance for me to see what I am truly capable of doing.  Nobody starts at the top, but this is my chance to make it one step closer.
