It takes "Two to Tussle"

April 28, 2013

Yesterday CFW was represented well at CrossFit Nashua for their “Two to Tussle” pairs competition! There were 10 of us competing and we were ready to go!

What a great day it was. I have to give it up to CrossFit Nashua for hosting such a great competition. The location was great for the amount of people they allowed to register and they have a beautiful facility. We were able to find a great spot outside of their overhead door to camp out on and debut the brand new CFW Pop up Tent! As I said we had 10 competitors, but we wouldn’t have been near complete without our fellow CFW-ers who weren’t competing but wanted to come along to cheer us on and of course the “fans” who wanted to come check us out and give a good yell!

My teammate W and I were ready to go. Pumped up and anxious to get started right upon arrival! Most of us started warming up right away as the ladies clean ladder was to kick off the event! The day flew by with tons of excitement! There was an unbelievable 20lb PR by our very own M on the clean ladder which was just amazing to be there to see in person! I made it through almost all my double unders without tripping up and surprised myself on the burpees, wall walks and even the thrusters. Some matched their previous PR’s on the cleans and we all pushed through rope climbs, heavy thrusters, rope climbs,  rowing, wall walks, burpee box jump overs, goblet squats, kettle bells swings and even sand bag runs! It was a great great day!

The icing on the cake was watching K and M compete in the final workout where they merged ahead from 2nd place to 1st and took home the big WIN for CrossFit Wachusett!!

Of course the most wonderful thing about competing with our crew and even the strangers at a crossfit competition, is the energy and motivation that comes from the crowd! Our teams were all spread out in different heats and there was never a moment where one, two and even more, people were standing by pushing, cheering and encouraging each of us to dig as deep as we could to power through the event.  There were lots of smiles, lots of high fives and some really really happy athletes!

I have to say, I am honored to be a part of such an great gym. Lets keep going!!
