Video Throwback

If a picture says a thousand words, how many words does a video speak?  This was one of the very first CrossFit videos I ever watched, and it totally lit a fire under me.

Nicole Carroll doing 15 overhead squats at bodyweight was a mind blowing feat.  I remember watching that video and immediately setting that as a goal for myself.  It took me about two years, but I eventually did it.  Unfortunately, the only video I have is of me coming up just short of that goal.  

What videos have you seen that inspired you to set a goal?  Post the video links in the comments.
