Anybody else’s grip a little shot??
OK! So we have 18.1 in the books. Congratulations to everyone who participated and I’m seriously SO proud of our gym. We officially have 63 of you signed up and #intheopen
BUT…we had WAY more people than that give it their full effort on Friday. That’s what is most important- participating surrounded by the support of your community.
I’ve loved seeing all of your photos, videos, & stories on Facebook & Instagram this weekend. Rocking those 2018 Open shirts, showing your spirit, and representing our home.
The day got started with our 6 & 7am crew throwing down with some impressive scores. Then at 9:30am momWOD was lit! There was nearly as many people there as there was at our first FNL. It’s so great to see that group as they grow, and the diversity is amazing- showing that all types and ability levels can come together to achieve a common goal.
Our first FNL was a charged night with a special energy in the air that only CFHV has. For some of you it was your first, and many of you were returning vets. Regardless of which category you fall into, we now know what we have to look forward to for 4 more Fridays, and it’s gonna be a blast!
We have so many first timers this year, many of whom have been CrossFitting less than 6 months. That’s really so special and not to be overlooked. We also have the entire Montante family doing the Open this year! Dad Matt, mom Danetta, older son Anthony, and Dominic representing CFHV in the Teens division after coming through our CF Kids program the last 3 years.
I am always honored to see the camaraderie among you all, the personal break-through moments, and of course some pretty epic performances. Let’s continue that spirit as we look to week 2.
