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:
Recently, I posted on my challenge of finding CrossFit partners for CrossFit competitions. So, I took to the internet and found two ladies to partner with at two upcoming CrossFit competitions.
Not many other people I know (besides those I partner with) are willing to partner with a stranger they “met” on the Internet and work out with them. It does take a bit of risk, and if you’re looking to win, you’ll have to take their word on their CrossFit skill ability.
However, if you’re like me, it’s more about just doing the CrossFit competition than winning. Plus, you are helping others to compete, and you’re having fun while you do it.
Sure, you never know what you’re going to get partnering with strangers. But does it matter? Watch my videos of me working out with strangers below, and you decide for yourself!

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.

I’ve never met someone who enjoys getting older every day.
When you CrossFit, aging will get everyone eventually.
Last weekend, I did a CrossFit Competition at CrossFit SOCO. It was tame compared to many CrossFit competitions I’ve done. But, I now have to recover two days, whereas when I was younger, I would have been good to work out again on Monday.
For me, it’s usually always something with CrossFit — either a tweak here or a strain there.
Already in 2022, I’ve been battling a right shoulder issue. I think it’s because I’ve been snatching more than usual.
Now, my leg hurts from that CrossFit competition.
It’s all incredibly frustrating.
The days I wake up and am 100% are few and far between.
For masters’ athletes, it’s about the rest, taming the volume, and being smart with your recovery.
I’ve being smart — only doing active recovery when I need it.
But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck.

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.
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:
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.
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:
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.
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:
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.
