Wod for 3/20
In times of pain and discomfort, I challenge you to smile as big as Matt. Ear to ear, with your eyes, showing all your teeth and simply glowing. Share it. Matt was a pillar of the CrossFit Solano community. He attended several competitions as a spectator and participant. He participated in the CrossFit Open; Friday night lights, beers and judging. And of course, cheering. He helped facilitate and organize our “Thankslifting” in-house comp. Winners got turkeys from his work :) I never saw Matt upset or angry, unless he was doing double unders. So when people ask, what can I do, you can step up! Be the Matt of CFS. Keep his smile alive by passing it on. Get checked out! If something is wrong, see your Dr sooner rather than later. Matt’s advice from our January event. To the last visit I had with Matt, even the night before his passing, he smiled his million dollar smile, and if he can do that. I can do that. So I am going to smile more. To Atasha, Demus, and Sasha, I’ll never know your pain, the daily suffering of seeing Matt. But my God, he loved you. Atasha, you were the woman of his dreams, only a couple of weeks ago he was talking about loving your physique:) Sasha and Demus, he wanted to see you graduate. Breaks my heart he only wanted a year longer and the time just wasn’t there. Sasha he told me more than once about you making cheer. I believe he was proud to see you both continuing with school when your peers were more worried about clothes, your father was battling cancer. Little Matt, he wanted to hold your daughter. He wanted to meet Rosalie and see your family. He was proud to tell me about you going to electrician school. He was excited to see you succeed. Even though he’s not physically here, I hope you know he’s proud of the man you’ve become and will continue to follow your dreams, and smile. Cause he’s watching and doing the same. My heart breaks San Diego didn’t happen. Mexico couldn’t happen. I hope you guys still take time for yourselves. If possible. Make a vacation he’d be proud of. It wasn’t enough. But we tried. We fought. You were worth it.
Matt was CFS. Matt is CFS.
