I feel like I’m just getting back to normal at the end of the day after yesterday. What an experience the day was. I can honestly say that I had a blast, but it wore me out. Walking into Capital City CrossFit I knew I was in for a marathon of a day but I don’t know that I had prepared myself for it fully. In the end I’m going to try and highlight some of the best moments of the day. First was actually being a competitor myself with the best guy I could imagine taking on the day with, Tony, you did great and we did our best I can honestly say that.
Here we are kicking off WOD 1 with our 50 Cal row. For a couple guys that didn’t get to practice the movements together to put a strategy together based off that I really think we did well. And for two big boys those broad jumps were not our strongest thing but we still did great. The second WOD we took on Wall Walks which I hate and were the death of me. I failed four attempts to get my second round done and that killed us for that I’m sorry man, but you are the best, if there’s another chance to team up, we need to do it again.
Secondly was judging, I loved meeting all the pairs that I was judging and although in some of the female heats I had a bit of a creeper feeling as I was staring at your midsections to make sure you were getting your bellybuttons to the wall it was still a great time. You all did great and the Rx women were crazy impressive. You intimidated me to no end, and more than one of you I would’ve killed to ask out at the end of the day. Seeing the hard work you put in inspires me to keep on pushing and getting better. I can’t wait to take some of you on as competition again. 2013 is going to be a year full of me killing it whenever I can in competitive exercising.
Third was the chance to be the eyes and ears for two companies and talk about their products and rep them a bit, as well as hashtag them as much as possible. Seriously it felt like it was a AMRAP hashtag for Blonyx and KillCliff. I hope that I did you both proud and that you will give me the chance to rep you again at things. Let me just throw this one out there for you both, North Central Regional dual company booth. You let me know and I’ll be there to pass out swag and rep your companies to the best of my abilities. I loved talking you up, and the people couldn’t get enough of the Tasty that KillCliff sent me, seriously it was gone by the time the first heat started. I wish I had gotten cases of the stuff to sell, I would’ve made a mint. I am hoping to do more with both companies, currently I’m an affiliate for Blonyx, they have great recovery through their HMB, and I’m going to start taking the HMB with Creatine for strength gains going into the open.
At the end of the day we gave away a lot of great stuff to the winning teams, including gift cards to Blonyx, Rogue Fitness and a can of Kill Cliff.
Leaving after 12 hours I was exhausted and hadn’t really eaten anything all day. A quick stop for some food and I was headed back home. This trip back to Springfield was far too short but I’ll be back soon, and hopefully this time it will be just to hang out, spend far too much time playing at Capital City CrossFit and will include a fun Strongman Sunday of picking up heavy things. I can’t say enough about how awesome this experience was, and if you have a competition coming up in the midwest, make sure to let me know.
