CrossFit For Hope – National Mall 2013
I had so much fun this weekend at CrossFit for Hope. It was a great cause and was worth having work out in the blazing heat, mid-morning in the middle of the National Mall. I didn’t do like amazing well at the brutal workout, but that wasn’t what it was about for me. I just loved being in the mix of the CrossFit community, seeing old friends, doing something all together for a great cause and having fun the only way CrossFitters know how – through fitness!
Such a great event and I was happy to be there –but in all honesty I felt sluggish and chunky the entire time. Then I saw the pictures and OMG — I look a bit thicker around the middle that I would like and started getting really down. Yeah, Yeah – I look strong and have muscles but I am also all about honesty – and I need to re-focus my eating and start getting leaner again — not to mention I need to rid myself of some of the physical effects I am feeling as of late. Today is the day —

And I can’t forget my friend Christmas Abbot giving me a headlock hug — She really is one of the nicest people you could ever meet – gorgeous, funny, nice, strong.

Imagine its 90 degrees, out on the National Mall doing that workout. Yeah – it was brutal. When we were done, I walked around a bit, said my hellos/goodbyes, went out for lunch. Drove home – showered and I crashed for a few hours. I was wiped out but happy I was there for another year.
