Re: Crossfit Games 08

I went last year, had a great time, came in second to last and I plan on defending my title again this year!

Seriously though, even if you think you couldn't compete you should do it anyways, it is a ton of fun! They allowed scaling on the WOD but of course you would have points deducted.

WOD-wise a row and a Sh*t ton of pullups (see my profile pic over there <~~~~, ) are sure to be a part of it. Couple that with a a 3 mile run with some of the gnarliest hills that you can imagine. And thats only on day 1!

Re: Crossfit Games 08

Anyone know why Greg A. didn't compete in last years games? Or Nicole, Annie, Eva T. for that matter?

Thumbs up Re: Crossfit Games 08

I don't know why Greg A. didn't make it.. maybe is schedule didn't allow. Nicole, Annie & Eva were helping to run it. Also, I suspect that a lot of the Santa Cruz Headquarters people didn't want to compete more so that the other affiliates would have a chance to win. Brendan wasn't going to compete in it either, and I actually managed to convice him that he should, and then he pulled in Zac and some of the other SC athletes who were helping out with the event, so SC Headquarters ended up winning the affiliate cup even without Nicole, Eva, Annie or Greg A. and some of the other monsters. It was the first time I had ever done the CrossFit Toatal. I had never even maxed out on the dead lift, back squat, or shoulder press. It was really fun and I was in the Toatal group with Connor and David from Brand-X Martial arts, and being coached by Jeff. Badd-*** old Goat Mark was in my group as well. We had a great time.
