This past weekend was the CrossFit Northeast Regional Qualifiers in Albany, NY. It was certainly a ton of fun and a very challenging weekend to say the least. Now before you think this post is about me, it's not. The reason for this post is to highlight the last several months leading up to the event. Although I did not finish as high as I would have liked, I worked very hard to prepare for it and proud to say that I have everything for each of the 3 grueling workouts. Part of my motivation for competing this year was showing the kids that you can make a goal for yourself, and strive hard to achieve it. Desite not qualifying for the CF Games in California in July, I still considered this each a success. I learned a lot about my own training and what I am capable of. The kids watched and supported me through and took away a lot of the same things that I did. In fact, we have several of our athletes from Steve's Club who have committed to training hard over the next year and entering next year's Qualifier. Of course I will do everything I can to help them get there.
Now that they have a good idea of what it takes to set a goal and go after it, don't be surprised if you see a a kid from Steve's Club over the next few years competing in the Games in Aromas California.
These kids now have a vision and goal in mind. Let's re-evaluate in a month from now and see where everyone is out. So stay tuned for more updates here on everyone's progress and the quest to compete in the 2010 Northeast Regional Qualifier.
