News on the Cross Fit Invitational

April 12th, 2010 · 5 Comments

A Journey in Discovery!

To have 30 of my Cross Fit buddies all cheering for me in the middle of a workout…

To find I have the ability to complete 30 Front Squats at 65 pounds with no rest.

To find I have the strength to complete 45 snatches at the end of the day.

To find out that “Yes, I can” in all competitions.

As most of you know, this past weekend, I competed in a “Cross Fit Invitational” put on by Cross Fit Next Level Performance.

It was a test of endurance, strength, stamina and speed all at the same time. Why did I do it? To test myself. To find out my strengths and weaknesses…to compete.

What did I learn from this event?

That I am strong! And, that is a really good feeling. I may not have been the best, but, I am proud that I got out there and did it. Going into it, I had a lot of doubts of my abilities- but I found out that what I was worried about meant nothing. I could do it all.

Would I do it again?
Yes, it’s likely. I like to compete. It was fun! Even better was that I got to spend the day with 150 other athletes who also like to compete.


To do this thing called Cross Fit has been incredibly challenging experience that I just can’t seem to find the words for. My trainers and teammates at Cross Fit CDR have been incredible and I am blessed to have met you all.

A complete run down of the events and results can be found here.

Also, thanks to Angie C for taking all the photos!
