Pat Padgett was diagnosed with an aggressive form of mouth/throat cancer in June 2014, just a few weeks after he competed on the Crossfit Southie Team at Regionals. Despite everything, Pat fought through his pain and lived the last year of his life on his terms. Pat never felt sorry for himself. He remained positive in a time of hopelessness. His spirit was, and forever will be, unbreakable. Pat passed away one year ago 11/14/15
Shortly before Pat’s passing he shared his words to live by with in a message to Goose (owner Crossfit Southie) to pass on to the Crossfit community.
“So do me the honor of living your life like you really mean it. Conquer your goals, do things you are a little scared of, make awesome memories that give you cool story’s to tell, and love, love as much as possible, freely and genuinely. Love people, love activities, love scenes and ideas, love material things, and songs, and just love as much as you can. Enjoy your life you only get one, and value your time, you never know how much of it you really have.”
Since Pat loved social media we are going to ask people to really live Pat’s message over the course of the next week and to post their activities to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #PatPphilosophy.
