These are the pics that I have from the past weekend. Of course they are a little SPC bias, it was my girlfriend taking the pictures. We will continue to add here and there.
Everyone that participated today ended up winning. The weather was beautiful, crowd supportive and athletes were stellar. The competition was outstanding, with all athletes giving their all on 3 difficult WODs. Once again the CF community showed its true colors, only supportive, respectful, wonderful athletes. There were NO EGOs, just great camraderie and CF FUN.
Please make sure to check back every now and then for pictures and a video.
Thank you to all of the volunteers and volunteer judges, spectators and athletes. We will let this sit in for a few days and then begin thinking about our next event. You can count on one thing, next year will be the 2nd Annual NEO CrossFit Challenge.
