It was a 2-Day event, culminating in 6 workouts (the 6th workout was announced last, for the top 5 male and female competitors of each division), with prize money, a gorgeous venue, vendors, social media coverage, and crazy awesome competitors. Like, Lacee Kovacs. He's the Hungarian monster from the CrossFit Games that placed 25th this year.
But my attention was on other things ...
Like our Arifjan athletes!
Jeeze, get your mind out of the gutter.
CFAJ came out and showed so much heart and tenacity.
During the last WOD I was choking back the tears. And I wasn't even the one working out.
Their performance was inspiring, and I'm so damn proud to train alongside these crazy cats.
In an effort to be helpful, I turned into the annoying mom taking photos of everyone and asking if they needed more Progenex or to have their shoulders Tiger Tailed for the 37,473 time ... :)
Maybe one day I'll actually compete again.
Until then, enjoying life from the sidelines.
