Happy Monday! I found an article (link) on the CrossFit Games website about Kyle Kasperbauer, a perennial competitor, who recently had shoulder surgery to repair damage to his labrum and rotator cuff (this sounded all too familiar to me). Over the last three years, Kasperbauer has placed in the top 20 at the Games witha personal best of 3rd place in 2012. Over the last year, he noticed a recurring pain in his shoulder that never quite went away. It turned out that surgery was the only option available that would allow him to once again CrossFit competitively. The downside is that recovering from this surgery is a slow process that often takes six months or longer. This year he will be competing in the scaled division of the open, but he has his sights set on the 2016 games. The road is a long one, but the pay off for this kind of dedication is well worth it. Don't let an injury, small or large, get in the way of your goals. Stick with it, you'll get there!
