Today I had a CrossFit competition at CrossFit MOB (mind over body) in Thornton, CO called Battle of the Boxes. I entered the female/female competition, and my partner was a girl from their box.
We worked really well together. She’s crazy strong, and I had a bit more skill work than her. The workouts suited us as well.
We got 2nd overall. We won the Floater, which was a partner sled push and pulled out a second place finish for WOD #2. Our prizes were really cool: a case of Kill Cliff drinks, a jump rope, wrist guards, a $100 gift card to Reebok, and a recovery drink.
I had a ton of fun (of course winning helps). Another team from my box competed in the male/male division and won 2nd place as well! Way to go, guys!
My partner commented how with partners you try harder because you don’t want to let the other one down. That’s certainly true. In WOD #2 one partner had to hold a 95 lb barbell in the front rack position while the other either rowed and did wall balls. I ended up doing most of the holding, and I held it longer than I normally would have because of her.
It was her first competition, and she had a blast. That’s what it’s about: pushing yourself while having fun!
