What a great day at the Festivus Games hosted at CrossFit 608! A huge congratulations to everyone competing especially Mary, Jenny, Taylor, Nancy, Lindsay, and Colleen who all were first timers. Impressive to see how well everyone preformed in the spotlight. The biggest takeaway was how strong and proficient CFB is compared to the rest of the field. Watching the deadlift workout I was smiling as the CFB athletes started with larger loads and moved better than the rest. Also as a group we dominated the squats which is no surprise since we squat all the time.
Big performances from Aaron on the pull-up/wall walk workout showing why he is the body weight ninja, Jamie coming in with a 2nd place on the back squats with a stacked field of big guys. Meghan got a 2nd on the max cal row, and Melissa had two 1st place finishes to go on and take 2nd overall. In the novice group Colleen and Jenny both got to show off their cardio with 2nd place finishes on the lunge and row workouts respectively and Lindsay just plan dominated with 1st overall. Our masters ladies were no excpetion either as they walked away with a 2nd and 3rd overall in a division of exceptional masters women. And our man Tim came away with a 2nd overall competing against the likes of Jack LaLanne from his prime.
Awesome job, I was so proud of my gym and excited to get back to training for the next time we get to compete. Also a big shout out to CrossFit 608 for hosting a well run event!
