CrossFit Competition: Luna’s Classic

Yesterday, I participated in Luna’s Classic CrossFit Competition in Loveland, Colorado, hosted by PhitGym Loveland.

My partner was someone I found on the Internet. We did pretty good. He hurt his ankle in CrossFit WOD 3, but we managed to finish.

Overall, it was fun and a great competition. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great CrossFit content today!

Thoughts on 22nd Place for Festivus Games

Festivus Games is a national CrossFit competition held on the same day at different hosting CrossFit gyms. Thus, they do a national leaderboard. I came in 22nd overall for Female Masters our of 253. I did not think this was very good. I just didn’t think I did very well.

I told my daughter this, who responded with, “Dang, Mom, you’re a pro.” Then I thought, “Well, maybe it wasn’t bad.” I think I just have too high expectations.

CrossFit Competition: Festivus CrossFit Loop

This past weekend I did the Festivus CrossFit competition in Castle Rock, Colorado, at CrossFit Loop. It was a great place, plenty of space, and nice hosts. I got third place in the female master’s division. Here’s the highlight video:

CrossFit Competition: Windsor Warrior 2022

I competed yesterday in the Windsor Warrior, a partner competition in Windsor, CO hosted by OFW CrossFit. It was fun. I partnered with a lady named Jill who I met there for the first time.

For CrossFit comps, it was tame. There were no real hard skills — the hardest being double unders and toes to bar. However, I did PR my thruster at 130 lbs, which was the highlight of the day.

The only qualm I had was that the competition was running about an hour behind schedule, and it was run with a military overture that I did not find appealing.

CrossFit Competition: Women’s Wod Jam 2022

This weekend I participated in Women’s Wod Jam at CrossFit Omnia. I love this CrossFit gym, and they always put on such great competitions. Plus, they have plenty of room to warm up before the WOD, so I feel better prepared.

I partnered with a gal named Brianne. We did fairly well considering we’ve never worked out together before. It was a fun CrossFit comp, and I highly recommend it.

CrossFit Competition: FrostFit

This past weekend I competed at a local CrossFit competition in Colorado Springs at CrossFit SOCO called FrostFit. I filled someone’s spot who got sick and partnered with a very nice lady.

This CrossFit Competition is what I would call tame. It had no real hard movements in it, and the second WOD was a strength ladder that I wouldn’t exactly call a CrossFit workout. Still, I was sore the next day, and the following day, I woke up and my left leg hurt pretty bad, so I had to take two days off CrossFit training.

It was fun. The weather warmed up, and CrossFit SOCO is in this quaint little part of Colorado Springs on the way to Manitou Springs. Here’s a video of the first WOD where the best part was carrying a dummy firefighter.

The Challenge of Finding CrossFit Partners for Competitions

I love CrossFit, and I love to compete in CrossFit. It’s not about winning (although winning is nice, and I’ve gotten some pretty cool prizes, too). I just want to compete. Yet, finding CrossFit partners is exceedingly difficult.

I haven’t connected with those at my gym very well, and lately, I’m working out at home a lot because it’s so cold I don’t want to leave my house. Plus, work is busy, and since I work on commission, I’d rather work in the mornings than spend an hour going to and from the gym.

I ask my friends and acquaintances to compete and usually get ghosted or turned down. I usually end up posting online; sometimes I get a partner, and sometimes I don’t. I email the host gym, which works sometimes, too. Many people don’t want to work out with strangers, or they want to win and don’t want to partner with someone who is “not good.”

The bottom line is that it’s very hard to find CrossFit partners, but if you’re in Colorado or nearby, let me know if you need a partner!

CrossFit Competition: Festivus

In October, I participated in a CrossFit competition called Festivus Games. This was a partner competition, and I didn’t have a partner. I contacted the host, Caliber Fitness in Casper, WY, and they arranged for me a partner. We competed in the master’s division.

While it was cold, it was fun. You can see the highlights here:

And here:

We did extremely well considering my partner was new to CrossFit. We ended up in second place, and it was a good time. Plus, I made a new friend.

CrossFit Competition: Battle at the Rock 2021

In October, I participated in an individual CrossFit competition in Castle Rock, Colorado, called Battle at the Rock. Hosted by Castle Rock Fitness, this event was as great as ever. I participated in the master’s competition, and although I didn’t podium, it was fun nevertheless.

The best part was the CrossFit floater, which we got to dive into a foam pit. You can watch the shenanigans here:

It was so much fun, as I describe above.

The rest were typical CrossFit workouts, as you can see here:

And here:

Fun day. Great hosts. Perfect weather. An absolute blast.

I highly recommend these guys. They put on great competitions and are as friendly as can be.

CrossFit Competition: Project Uplift 7.0

In September, I participated in Project Uplift. This was my third year, and it was as great as ever. I joined a team from CrossFit Miramont, and we did Rx.

The day started off great! We did well in the events, and the money raised goes to support Kids at Heart, a local nonprofit helping foster kids.

You can watch me compete here:

 

And here:

We did really well considering I hadn’t worked out with these guys before. I did end up ripping doing chest to bar pullups, but it was totally worth it.
 
Great day with great people for a great cause.
