Hey Guys! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend – for us in the US it was certainly nice having that extra day of relaxation…
Of course, every extended weekend bleeds into an hellish short work week (at least for me) and I’m suffering from a minor sinus infection. Boo! I need to clean up my act soon because come Sunday evening I’m flying out to Munich for a German press tour and then heading off on my European adventure! Weeeee!
Before I jump into next weekend, I first need to discuss this past Saturday and Sunday–specifically, the Moxie Madness Throwdown. Yes, I dedicated my holiday weekend to Crossfit and I loved every second of it. I’ll stare everyone the nitty gritty details, but I had the privilege/honor/responsibility of being a volunteer judge during the weekend’s festivities and it was a such a fun way to get a behind-the-scene take on what goes on during a local (non-Crossfit Games) competition.
Luckily, I had the best judging buddy all weekend!
Day 1 of the competition went by in a blur and finished off with a crazy 300 DU/snatch/prowler relay. Nuts! And day two started off with a spicy squat clean and jerk rumble:
I’m slowly building up confidence to signing up for my first local competition, but until I can comfortably string together those DUs (did I mention there were 300 DUs?!)–it’s the judging duties for me.
All-in-all, a fantastic weekend. I didn’t think it was possible, but I think I love this sport even more after watching a local throwdown…
