Re: East Coast CF Challenge

Thanks so much for all of the great positive feedback, I really appreciate it. I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves. If there is anything you feel we could have done to make the event even better please feel free to let me know.

I will continue to upload photos to our album all week and slowly start going through the videos and start posting them. Keep checking the website.

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

Simply amazing event from the organization by Jason and Susie to all the volunteers and to every single competitor. A truly unforgettable experience. It was great meeting and suffering with so many wonderful people.

Only way I see making it better is maybe less potatoes and more BBQ chicken next year? :stir:

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

Just wanted to say congrats to all the competitors. It was really amazing and inspiring to watch everyone go through all the events. Every event was taken on with such intensity and everyone was a great sport.

Lisbeth - it was great judging the Total with you. That was my 1st time judging an event like this and you made it a lot of fun. Also I was listening to you coach people on during the hopper and you were great at it! It was awesome!

Chip - I agree with Jess, that avatar is great.

It really was a great event.

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

I would like to thank Jason for putting on an unbelievable event this past weekend. There is no better community out there then those of CrossFit. It was fun getting my *** kicked with everyone else. Thank you all for showing everybody from CrossFit Milford what CrossFit is all about.

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

I will post all of the results tomorrow. Look for a video of the CFT tonight. I am continually uploading more photos to the East Coast Challenge Photo album. We have hundreds of pictures from each event, so everyone should be in some pictures.

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

I made a video, but I'm having some trouble uploading it, hopefully I'll fix it today.

Well said. It's always easier to stand and critique (as a judge or a competitor) than it is to organize and run something like this. I think we all learned a lot this weekend and I would venture that we're all better CrossFitters for this experience. And that really says something.


Jason and John -- thanks for the kind words. You both were incredibly pleasant to deal with, even in stressful situations.

And to all those phenomenal men who put up with me yelling/motivating them during the Hopper: you guys were amazing. (To a man, they each thanked me afterwards -- and that says more about them than it ever could about me.) You guys rock.

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

Jess and John... that avatar is just how I SHOULD look, considering my "night-before-the-event" activities.

Re: East Coast CF Challenge

Huge ups to Jason and the entire crew from Albany CrossFit.

It was an awesome experience and one that I will happily repeat.

That hopper was absolutely EVIL!

Congrats, Jason -- you did great.

Sean

PS: Chip - when we left the bar on Saturday night, I couldn't believe that you and the other guys were staying!
