Finally got a little slideshow done from our run at the 2009 CrossFit Games. One repeated picture and one “bleep” word in the soundtrack. Sorry! The Games experience is still alive in our minds. All the athletes have their training set on next year. I predict another strong team! It is hard to describe the whole experience. We placed 18th out of 97 teams. We were so happy with our performance but like every workout, there’s always that thought of doing better. The workouts demanded strategic planning and while we felt we could have produced some better numbers had we planned better, it was extremely rewarding. Coming through the Stadium WOD 1st in our heat was worth goosebumps.
We are set for our farewell party for Orie Shafer and Courtney Kleefus. We have the private game room set from 6-9 p.m. at Llywelyn’s Pub in Webster Groves. However, they are asking for 20 people minimum so it’s crucial that I get a head count before making the reservation. PLEASE post to comments if you will be attending and if you have any guests.
