Normally I would attempt to bait you with some interesting line about competitive drive or a thought provoking nugget regarding tiny shorts and baby oil. Well guess what, I’m not going to do that. I’m not going to promise pictures of highly fit, half naked people in this post (Don’t worry, I wouldn’t dare leave them out) Nope, all I am going to say is, Competing at CrossFit is fucking RAD! Gather around the camp fire kiddos and let uncle Leroy tell you about the time that he threw down at the CrossTown ThrowDown.
No shit there I was….
It is 24 hours before the start of my first individual competition since last July and wouldn’t you know it, I have a bout of something that makes food not stay in your body so well. I am convinced that it was some form of food poisoning (my clever friend informs me that it was a virus but he went to a half rate medical school so I don’t pay him too much mind) Regardless, I loose about 12 pounds in a 36 hour period, I can’t keep anything down, I can barely stand up and it feels like I’ve been hit by a Mack truck. So it is only logical that I would do a competition that entails multiple high intensity workouts in a single day.
The CrossTown Throwdown was being hosted by CF Stapleton. Any one who knows me knows that I often speak highly of this place. I have done workouts here before and I am always impressed by the coaches knowledge and professionalism. That said, I had high expectations going into this event.
