Paula turned in 9 toes-to-bar for the first time while doing 15.1.  There’s no doubt that the little extra push of the Open helps athletes accomplish new things.  Nice work Paula!

Did You PR?

The stories that have come out of last week’s 15.1/a experience have been nothing short of inspiring.  The coaches have heard from athletes about how they PR’ed their clean & jerk (for a few by 20 pounds?!), got their first toes-to-bar, did the workout RX when they thought they couldn’t, or put up 75 and 115lb snatches for the first time.

We want to hear from you!  Post to comments your experience from 15.1/a.  Did you PR?  Did you do something you thought you couldn’t?  Did you have fun?

And don’t forget, 15.2 gets underway tonight at 6pm for the second live announcement.  Tune in to games.crossfit.com at 6pm MST to hear the workout and watch the head to head workout.  As always, we’ll be streaming the live announcement on the TV at the shop.

Here is what you need to know for Week 2!

HEATS AND SIGN-UP
The WOD, 15.2, will be announced live on Thursday at 6pm via a broadcast on the CrossFit Games site.  Thursday night, by 9pm, we will have the heat times for Friday nights events listed in MBO.

For the Friday Night Lights, you will sign-up for a heat just as you do for classes.  It’s important to note that the time (heat) you sign-up for is the time your WOD will BEGIN, so you’ll want to get there earlier to get with the Warmup Coach and get warm.

FOOD
YellowBelly Chicken will deliver pre-ordered dinners.  Pre-order your dinner here and please remember to bring cash or check for payment.  We encourage everyone to stick around for food, friends, and fun.  Please BYOB as we will not have beer on-site like last week.

SPONSOR
We’ll be raffling off a host of goodies from Jackson’s Honest Potato Chips!

LOGGING YOUR SCORES
Once you have completed the WOD you will be handed a slip of paper with your score and your judges name on it.  You will need to submit that information to the CrossFit Games site for validation and can do so using the shop computer before you even leave!  Score submissions are due by Monday at 5pm and they take no exceptions.  We will do an initial round of validation on Sunday so you may not see your score until then.  We will do a final score validation on Monday.

This is as much a social as it is a competition so please bring your friends and family too! 

Athletes from other CrossFits are welcome to participate if they are registered for The Open, but please reserve your spot by contacting stefanie@testing.crossfitroots.com in advance.

See you all Friday!
