Now that the Open is over I just want to say I’m proud of all of you for coming in for the last 5 weeks and challenging yourselves week after week.  These were some really tough workouts, as usual, and some of you came in and tackled exercises and weights you’re not comfortable doing in your daily wods. That’s what it’s all about.  It’s all about the community and coming together as well.  I can say I had a great experience once again going through the Open with you all side by side.  It took me two to three days to recover from some of the workouts, 14.5 in particular, but I was inspired to push myself as hard as you all did.  Until next year’s Open ….

    “Exercises and weights we’re not comfortable doing in our daily WODs” – yep, that about sums it up. I’ll now feel really lazy anytime I scale….Seriously, my first open was an amazing experience shared with amazing athletes. Big thanks to Patty and all the coaches for the great training and judging. I’m also grateful to Kmac and Santiago for being really supportive even while wearing their judging hats, to Vonnes for the bucket during 14.5, and to Willie for having long encouraged me to give the Open a try.
