Now that the games are over and my stress level is down I would like to thank everybody for their encouragement and support.
The experience was something I’ll never forget. The competitors were tough but during and after each WOD there was always plenty of camaraderie. The Home Depot Center was awesome. Although the Masters started off in Lot 17 we still had all the fringes that the individuals had. It’s a whole different ball game on the big stage. Reebok supplied all the athletes with enough workout clothing that I had to check a bag on the flight home.
Wednesday was check in and Reebok held a feedbag with an open bar for the competitors and their families. It was the only time I think I’ve ever seen a bar not lose money. Thursday was orientation at the Home Depot Center where we got to see the workout areas. The next three days were full of fun-filled stress. It was great to have Keith, Cindy, Buzz, B, Rooney and Lindsey along with the Invictus crew cheering me along.
I just wanted everyone to know what a great experience it was and only possible due to the coaching and Cynergy CrossFitters suffering along with me through Chips double WOD weekends to help me get ready. Everybody’s support before and during the event was incredible and won’t be forgotten.
Thanks to all of you,
