Last weekend, my daughter and I competed as a team at the Windsor Warrior CrossFit competition at Official Fitness in Windsor. We met our goal: we did not come in last. When you have a masters and a teen athlete competing against 20-year-olds, that was an accomplishment, especially since my daughter’s knee was hurting so I was left to shoulder the burden.
It was fun. The workouts were good, but cold since two were outside due to COVID. However, we had a good day. No PR’s. Just a day hanging with my daughter before she flies the coop.
Yesterday, I did another CrossFit competition. It was a partner comp with one male and one female. This one was local, held at Official Fitness in Windsor, CO.
Like most CrossFit competitions, this one had 3 workouts and a floater and a final if you made it. We finished in fourth place by just a hair.
My partner, Alex, and I make a great team. Our strengths and weaknesses complement each other and it’s always fun to work out with someone who 1) pushes you and 2) wants to win as much as you do! The great thing about partner workouts is you work harder so you don’t let the other one down! I definitely did, and I know he did as well!
It was a great time. The day was bright and sunny. My kids were able to come and watch because it was so close to our house. The other competitors were amazing athletes. Official Fitness was a welcoming, warm box. Hanging out with other athletes is always inspiring.
In addition, I added more bruises to yesterday’s. It was a great warm-up to the Open (which is happening in 5 days and I’m not ready!!!). And I was blessed to spend time with some of my favorites athletes from my own box, CrossFit Endure! Thanks for cheering us on guys!
