Well…. Over 80 athletes participated. Four CrossFit affiliates represented. 1 WOD dominated.
Big thanks to CrossFit Clayton, Phalanx CrossFit, East Coast CrossFit and our Raleigh CrossFit athletes who participated, assisted, judged, smiled, laughed, sweated, left it all out there and gave 100%.
We are so proud of everyone today. It was a special day – and honestly that is not surprising. It is what such a day should be – all about love. This Valentine’s Day workout definitely displayed that. Couples, friends, new friends, old friends, visitors and family all came together to share the moment. A true representation of what our CrossFit community is all about.
Next up for this CrossFit family is the 2012 CrossFit Games Open. If you haven’t registered, please do so. The Raleigh CrossFit team is getting rolling. The Open is 5 workouts, announced each Wednesday, beginning Feb. 22. We will hold particular days where you can perform the workout with a judge so that it can be submitted to count as official participation in the Open. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Give it a shot and see where your workouts have been taking you. If you enjoyed the atmosphere on Saturday, you will LOVE the open. Register here.
