Confessions of a cheater

Dear Diary: It’s been several days since my last entry. I’ve cheated several times.

Build up.

My hand, torn and ragged, cut and bandaged, dry and cracked. A few days ago a friend asked me if CrossFit was worth the money. For me it’s worth every penny. Before I found CrossFit I was a typical skinny guy that was getting a little chubby around the edges. I wasn’t overweight or even...
