      Matt V – don’t know how else to reach you. Are you having problems posting your score and seeing it. So far, no success for Val, Dick, Garrett or I. I’ve texted Matt P to see if he can see/validate the scores.

      fwiw – I went to the comments on the 11.2 wod on the games’ website and we aren’t the only ones having problems

  2. Melissa

    That was great. I want every Saturday to be “competition Saturday” from now on. Lots of inspiring performances — father/son, husband/wife, young, old(er), first timers and experienced athletes. But the epic performance of the day, hands down, was Chris. The young man tore through two rounds then ran outside the box to expel this morning’s breakfast. Did he quit? Hell no. He returned to turn in seven rounds. Outstanding.

    Today was amazing!! This format rocks! I”m with Brad, let’s do it every Saturday!!

    Val, you are a machine, that was fantastic and so fun to watch!! You are from here on crowned the box jump queen.

    Jess, Melissa, Carmen, Audra, Anna, Cassie, Tara, Gracie, Lindsay and 1st timer Brittney, You girls were incredible today and such an inspiration.

    Guys, you were awesome today too. Ryan, you are incredible. Imagine if you really were like into Crossfit and came more than once a week……. 10+ rounds!!

      I’m too tired to comment. I truly enjoyed judging all you folks. Todd, Carmen, Audra I hope I didn’t sound too much like a drill sergeant but I just wanted y’all to keep going and put everything out there.

      I agree with previous posts with regards to Chris. Chris, I think you hardened the steel within you today. It takes tremendous effort to dig as deep as you did. Continue to test yourself like you did today because you will be amazed at what you are capable of. Hats off to you young man.

      Didn’t get to meet the other young man who Garret judged but what I saw of his workout was really impressive. He needs to be back in there.

      Ryan…. Holy cow. You have a big engine there brother. Spooky.

      Brad, Val, Matt V, Jonathan, Casey, et al that was a great day. Thanks for letting me hang out and give it go.

    I had a great time this morning. The camaraderie was second to none. Thanks to Gracie for being my counter, and to whom ever was kicking my feet to get me off of the mat during the push-ups. I managed 6 rounds, which put me in good company with Mike.

    I am looking forward to improving on this. 🙂
