CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2013
The CrossFit Games Open WOD’s for 2013 have come to a close. Reflecting back upon the last 5 weeks brings me great joy. We had 30 athletes that chose to participate in the open WODs. Some of them were excited and some of them I peer pressured into doing them. I hope everyone who participated had a positive experience. I can’t even begin to express how exciting it was to watch people do things they could not do before the open and move weight they didn’t think they could move. The open is a chance for CrossFit athletes around the world to rank themselves, using specific standards, against athletes around the globe. Some of the WODs brought disappointment in our scores, but that is to be expected. What I came away from this experience with, is the desire to push my hardest every time, every WOD and stick to the standards. I will treat everyday like I am being judged for my form and push to do the movements I am able to do even if I am slow. That is how we become stronger. Next year I hope we have 100 athletes participating in the Open WODs. All ARMS athletes, your coaches and I are very proud of you and your eagerness to become better than yesterday! Finally, to quote the great Dr. Clint Hill, “Okay that’s enough. Get back to work. 330 days left before the next open.” -Micki
