Dear Mr. Castro,
I have an idea for 18.1. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. I was wondering if you’d consider running a contest to let CrossFitters submit ideas for Open workouts and then choose one. What better way to promote the sport of CrossFit, generate more interest in the Open, and get everyone excited, involved, and have ownership in the sport.
Picture it now: You do the Open announcement at the box of the winner. You choose one athlete from the box to go against a Games athlete. What a dream come true for us average CrossFitters who will never get a chance to compete in the Games! It would be something I know I’d never forget. What a cherished memory!
This could be huge! I know, it’s more work. I get that. Still, what do you think? Could we give it a go? After all, you’ll never know unless you try. And not knowing is worse than failing.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
If you’re like me, you’ve been training for the 2018 Open since the last Open workout of 2017. In 2017, you learned your weaknesses and formulated a plan to improve them (along with everything else). You’ve been counting down the days for 18.1. You’ve been praying you get your last skills honed in time. You’ve been plotting how to do better. And lastly you’ve been excited about the process!

As they say, let the Games begin!
Week One of the Open begins February 22nd for 18.1.
I have a throwdown on January 21st and a competition on February 17th.
Between now and then I’m going to be working hard on my handstand walks and gaining strength. And in the immediate future getting well and getting over my cough.
I swam today for the first time in a long time and coughed a lot but made it through.
Every week I plan to update here my progress. And my scores for the Open.
Let’s make this the best Open ever!
