East vs. West recap

CrossFit Midtown made a splash at Saturday’s East vs West competition at CrossFit HD in Chamblee. We had two teams – the Hooverballers (9/13) and Quadzillas (12/13)- compete in the Mixed division, and two teams – the Midtown Get-Downs (12/24) and Chicken Legs (22/24) – compete in the Elite division. But this competition was about SO MUCH MORE than the final standings. Competing is about mingling with the CrossFit community, seeing where you stack up outside your box (on THAT given day, in THAT given field, in THOSE given WODs), and having fun.
CFM opened less than five months ago, and most of our competitors have only been doing CrossFit that long (or not even that long!). It was the first CrossFit competition for 17 of the 21 athletes who competed! Thanks to all of you who stepped outside your comfort zone to compete on Saturday. We competed with CF Games competitors, elite Olympic lifters, former college/pro athletes, and OURSELVES. I am proud of all of you, and thank you all for giving it everything you’ve got.
Like Tirzah said: “Now I know what I have to work on.” Whether you realized you’ve got some work to do at box jump-overs (the Twinkle Toes award goes to Woody!), gymnastics (damn you, handstand push ups!), Olympic lifting, or just sprints and baton hand-offs, I hope you all learned something about yourselves and had a great time. Be proud!
