Something new to suck at

I can’t jump rope.

I’m 40 years old and I can’t do something that most seven year olds can master.  But I’m trying.  So I was pretty impressed with myself when I managed to string ten jump rope singles together.

My Crossfit coach – who is a very supportive guy – said that after I master double-unders*, I can then “find something new to suck at.”  Hence this blog.  My life has been a constant journey of finding new stuff to suck at.

* A double-under, for those of you who don’t know, is a bastard jump rope maneuver where you let the jump rope pass under you TWICE every time you jump.  Without, presumably, breaking your neck.
