Not helping that fear is that the WODs are very strength-centric and none play into my strengths (double-unders, running, box jumps...). This happens at CrossFit events, you can't choose your workouts, you have to be ready for anything so I have no complaints. But even if I finish and get to the shot put first, I still have to find a way to launch a 12 pound ball further than guys that will likely be stronger than me. In the clean, I have to hope my form and adrenalin can get me a few extra pounds. I'd love to be okay with myself going out and doing my best (which I will do) but what if my best is the worst of those there? It will be VERY tough for my ego to take that.

With all that said, I'm wayyyyy too cocky to actually think I will come in last. I know I can compete with others that have been doing crossfit for a similar amount of time as me. I've come a long long way in the past 7 months (wow, is that all it's been?). I also know that adrenalin will be flowing, the other competitors will be screaming me on (which helps more than most would imagine) and if I take the time to warm up properly I'll do fairly well. I fully expect to PR the 1000m row and the clean.
I should also note here that I over think EVERYTHING.
