2012 NW Regionals

CrossFit has always been part a huge part of me for the last three years, but this year has been extra exciting for the last 3 months as I made a commitment to myself to participate in the 2012 Crossfit OPEN back at the end of February (here).  Based on the workouts during those 5 weeks of the OPEN, my box NWCF Bellevue and myself earned a spot to compete (here) at the 2012 Crossfit Northwest Regionals this past weekend in Puyallup, WA.


Here is a sneak peak into my Memorial Day weekend!!!


The Northwest Crossfit Bellevue Team


This was a first for me to compete at this level as I have always played sports and been athletic, but wasn't involved in intense pressure environments like this.  If only I was a collegiate basketball player (ha) and could have been maybe more chill.  Luckily, I am a stress ball prior to the WOD clock starting and can get it the zone or blackout, whatever you want to call it :)


Stay tuned for a more thorough update ... I spent today resting my body after 3 days competing and eating the best cheat meal ever at Lunchbox Laboratory (cheeseburger, tator tots, and topped it off with a shake)!!!

You definitely deserved a cheat meal... or five! I am so impressed by your drive and dedication to Crossfit. Way to go at Regionals! I was stalking your page for photos and updates every few hours. Seriously. My gym (for some reason I hate saying box) didn't send anyone this year since they're still a fairly new gym but have intentions of sending next year. That said, Jenks Crossfit won our region! Wahoo! They're a Tulsa suburb. They'll be one to watch during the games I hope!

I am so glad you're able to get in the zone! I get nervous even before some WODs just in CLASS so I couldnt even IMAGINE being at regionals! So proud of you, impressed by you, and excited for you! :)

Also, the heat has reached 95 degrees here. I'm sad to admit that I haven't been going to CF as much as I'd like. It's just.so.hot. I've done a few of the WODs on my own at my gym, but I know they aren't as intense when I do it on my own. Blah. I'm bummed but I still can't bring myself to go as much as I was when it's this hot. I've come to terms with possibly dialing it down a hair and then ramping it up again in the fall maybe. Once/twice a week at CF + the gym on my own is still much better than nothing.
