I did it. I registered for the CrossFit Games Open. I read what the 1st WOD was last night, and then I had dreams that I owned those burpees. So naturally, when I woke up I felt an overhwhelming sense of urgency to register. Like it had to be done – like there was no other option. I know (this time, anyway) I won’t make it to Regionals, and that’s okay, because I’m doing this to challenge myself. There are also a handful of people from my box that are doing it too, and I feel an even deeper connection to those people for having signed up. I don’t know how it will play out, and I don’t care. I just want to see what I’m really made of, because I know it’s more than just tears and red hair. Let’s dooooooo this!
This past weekend I went to the Winter Shakedown Competition at CrossFit FAST in Westlake Village to support our team from CrossFit 310 & to snap some photos of all the fantastic athletes that came out to compete. It was a great turn out, and the event ran smoothly. They even let me inside the athlete ring to snap photos during the 1st WOD! I bought some tanks from Life AsRx, ran into & met the co-owner of WOD Gear (Gabriel Pelino) at Starbucks, who is a totally sweet guy, and I (and pretty much everyone else) also drooled over Andrea Ager’s (pictured first below) quads and sweet rope descent. Major congratulations to our 310 team Brook Epperson, Jason Tank, Brittny Burford & Graham Burford! Our gym’s continued success is a joy to watch. – Rebecca The Red
