Sorry I didn’t get this picture 1/2 second sooner before Carly finished her final back squat, this is the 6:45 class staying to cheer her on through the end!! This is what we mean when we talk about community.
Kind of a lot of news so please bear with me for a long post!
First off, the 2013 CrossFit Open is now over! What’re your thoughts? Did you have fun? I for one think it’ll be nice to get back into a regular training schedule and not be concerned with the open WOD 1-2 times each week!
It was pretty cool to see so many people get signed up and compete each week. We had over 60 people signed up and I think we can double that for 2014!
Boise CrossFit has also unofficially qualified a team for a trip to Regionals! Last I looked we finished in 15th place in the region and our team even took 5th place on the final workout! Out-freakin-standing! We haven’t had a chance to finalize the team that will be traveling to Seattle (actually Kent WA) in May for the regional event and there’s a small chance I’ll get an individual invite (I was 5 places out of an automatic qualifying and if enough ppl go team then they may fill the vacancies with people who finished out of the top 48). Either way Boise CrossFit will be at the 2013 NorthWest regionals. There’s already carpool and other travel talk happening on the Facebook Boise CrossFit open page. Can’t wait to cheer on team BCF and we will certainly have more details very soon!
We also would like to say thank you to everyone who brought baked “betters” and also those of you that helped by purchasing items! Peggy’s “better for you” bake sale was a big success and raised over $400 towards and AED (automated external defibrillator) for the gym. Boise CrossFit would like to make up the difference for the AED cost and get it into the gym ASAP. Again, a special thanks to Peggy for getting the ball rolling for this!
