Community Service & Memorial Day Logistics
Wine Country CrossFit gave back to the community last weekend when we set up our obstacle course at the annual Girls On The Run event at Kennedy Park. This year’s community service theme was “Super Heroes,” and we had 50 kids race their way through the course. They choose a card at the beginning which corresponds to where they pick up the weighted ball. They leap, skip, hop and crawl their way through, returning time after time in an attempt to beat their previous time. A good time was had by all!
Our very own Coach Hilary participated in the Wine Country Classic Olympic Weightlifting Competition on Saturday. This fun event was hosted by CTS, the very same people who used our West Wing for nine months following the earthquake for their bootcamp program. In her own words:
I just finished my first Oly Lifting Meet and it was a great experience. I didn’t PR but I did complete 6 of my 6 lifts (you get to try only 3 attempts at the snatch and 3 at the c&j). One was not counted because I dropped the bar before the bell went off (newbie mistake), and two were not counted because I “pressed out” on my jerk – where you are supposed to immediately lock out. Still, I am pleased with the result, and I learned a ton! JC and I watched some of the other heats and we were inspired and learned so much watching these athletes! In fact, we have a crazy idea…stay tuned for a “mock” In House Oly Lifting Competition that we will be pulling together soon! Now that the meet is behind me, I am excited to get back to CF style workouts at our box-I missed CF style programming!
