Last year at this time we were all gearing up to cheer on these two awesome ladies at the CrossFit Games Regional competition!
With the newly formed "West Regional" going down in Del Mar this weekend (Friday through Sunday) it's hard not to think back to the last seven years of Regional competitions during which so many of us traveled near and far to coach, cheer, support, and generally be the noisiest little section in the stands as we screamed our heads off for Cassie, Liz, Sarah, and/or Amy.
Since careers and babies and moving have made 2018 a competition year "off" for some of our highest level athletes, we're watching from home this year and instead focusing much of our hopes (and stress LOL) on the soon-to-be home to Arena Ready 3.0. But it doesn't mean we can't throw it back a little to last year...
Here's Dr. Cassie in Event 4 showing some smart strategy/pacing and blazing fast handstand walking... and almost catching Lindsey Valenzuela at the finish! (video start at 1hr 32min):
And Sarah in Event 6, wearing her vintage "2013 Smile Like Sarah, Eat Like Liz" Regional tank top, hitting the gas pedal and not letting off of it (video start at 1hr 2min):
Can't wait to watch this weekend's events and cheer on some of our old friends who are hitting the competition floor to represent the OG NorCal exercisers!
