Fight Gone Bad PR!

I attended the Crossfit Level 1 Certification up here in Union City this weekend. It was amazing! I learned so much...not only about Crossfit, how it works, etc., but also got a lot of correction in my form (especially squats)!

It's wonderful to constantly improve and be able to measure that.

Anyway, we did Fran and Fight Gone Bad over the weekend. Fran was scaled. Maybe because of the lack of food, or sleep or both, but I was totally arching my back to get the 65lbs up, so we scaled down to 45. Needless to say, with jumping pullups, my time decreased dramatically to 5:41. Cool, but I'll be more impressed with myself later when I can do it to standard.

Today, however, we did Fight Gone Bad. My first score of 197 was respectable, but today I did 220!!! Okay, so I still have a long way to go (which is what makes the journey so great), but I AM FREAKING ECSTATIC!

Actually, let me say that again...I AM FREAKING ECSTATIC!!


I love Crossfit so much. It is the coolest, most bad-assed philosophy and group of people I've ever had the pleasure of being associated with.

Life is good.

HOLY SHIT 220! And here I thought I was "just" visiting your blog to congratulate our newest Level 1 and what do I find instead? A Super Bad Ass in the making!

Shannon I am so impressed with your progress. You are growing in such huge leaps and bounds and I can't wait until I get to say, "I knew her when." Woo Hoo!

Congratulations Level 1. Stay the Course and SET the Example! Kel
