Somebody please pinch me… really!
21-15-9 Split jerk (135/95)
50 Air Squats after each roundIf you had told me on Thursday that on Sunday night, I’d be writing about our team doing anything other than just having a “strong showing” at Regionals, I would have said you were crazy. But had you told me I was going to be writing about us qualifying for the CrossFit Games… I would have told you you had completely lost your mind! You know, it just goes to show you what a committed group of people can do when everyone works together and pulls in exactly the right way, at exactly the right time. We certainly weren’t the strongest team out there, and definitely not the fastest… but we never stopped believing in ourselves… that we were just going to go out there and do our very best… and have FUN in the process. Which we did, time and again over the weekend.
Well, after some serious “Cupid Shuffling”, and 6 incredible performances in some really challenging WODs, we came away with the 3rd place prize. Really. No kidding. I’m repeating that for me because it still hasn’t really sunk in. WE’RE GOING TO THE GAMES!!!! I couldn’t be prouder of our team – Lauren, Annita, Shirley, Cathy, Zach, Logan, Sam, Kenny… and I couldn’t be more appreciative of our community… that showed up to support us time and again over the past 6 months! HEY GANG, WE’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO THE CROSSFIT GAMES!!
So mark your calendars for the weekend of July 29, 30, and 31… CrossFit LA will be representing Southern California at the Home Depot Center… it won’t be something you’ll want to miss!
