Every little boy wants to be a superhero when they grow up. And every good superhero has an original story. This is how mine started: I grew up a straight A student in a house where success was everything. Anything less was considered trash. I remember crying when I got my first B and hiding my report card because I didn't want to get in trouble. My mom said study and you'll get a good job. Dad said study so you become a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. As I was borderline failing engineer school at 145lbs and a very frail frame. It happened. Someone said, hey let's go to the gym. They gave me some weird drink. I drank, I lifted, and I wasn't sore the next day. I went again. And again. And again. I went so often that I thought, why do I love this so much? What pushes me to lift? Then it hit me. The drive. The drive of being able to defeat one of the best competitors I know. The drive to beat the strongest opponent an opponent that forces me to break my limits, be more than who I am, and take a step into the unknown. The drive to overcome myself.
And here we go...tbc
Happy Valentine's day guys! ♥️
