This weekend is the CrossFit Games. If you haven’t seen any of it yet, check out this live stream – Spectator Stream. Today is the last day of competition and it’s going to be epic. The event started with a 700m swim, 8km bike and 11km run. And then a boat load of other stuff all weekend. To say it’s amazing would be an understatement.
However, I do find something even more amazing than the athletes at the Games.
The athletes at CrossFit Moncton amaze me the most.
We have Christine, who is doing full depth squats, after undergoing knee surgery not long ago.
We have Tim, who took a few months off, come back and run 3km (when he could have easily taken a “rest day”).
We have Mom, who is still lifting heavy and setting new personal records, even after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
We have Natacha, who tore her achilles tendon playing frisbee, come back to the gym after three months and hit workouts like she never took time off.
And we have Gillyon, who did 150 double unders and 150 situps in 6 minutes, even after having an emergency C-section only 6 months ago.
There are SO many more amazing stories. The CrossFit Games athletes may be crazy strong and super fit, but it’s the members at CrossFit Moncton that give me goosebumps! Thanks for being so inspirational!
