“I didn’t expect to see anything like this. It’s pretty intense!”
That’s what the girl from the local radio station (MaxFM) said to me after watching the first two heats.
And to be honest, I would agree. I knew we were going to see some fast times, but I didn’t expect to see so many people crush it. It was nothing short of amazing.
Big thanks to all those that helped out. It was nice for me to be able to sit back this year to watch the event. That wouldn’t have been possible without all the help that was given. The setup and tear-down was so fast and smooth thanks to our many volunteers (and participants too). Thanks to the CrossFit Moncton crew for helping with registration, selling shirts and recording times. Thanks to the judges from CrossFit Fredericton, Bathurst, Saint John, PEI and Kinetics! Thanks to CrossFit Fredericton, Bathurst and Kinetics for donating prizes! Thanks to Joanna for keeping me organized throughout the whole event. Thanks to all the athletes for stepping up and showing Moncton what real fitness looks like. Thanks to all the spectators for coming out, to watch and to cheer for all the participants.
We had such a great turnout this year! We had lots of new people join us this year, and it was great to see so many new faces. And I heard rumblings of a lot more people that plan on competing next year. I know who you are, so I’ll be hounding you in 2011.
Thanks for coming and I will see you at next year’s Atlantic Hopper Event!
