Come celebrate WOD 12.5 and spring at Roots on Thursday. Bring the fam, bring your significant other. If you're a member of Roots, you should be there!

SPRING FLING IS THURSDAY!

This Thursday marks the close of the CrossFit Open season at Roots and we plan to celebrate!

Remember what the first week of spring felt like in high school or college?  Shorts, sunglasses, and good spirits ran all over campus.  Day drinking, Cornhole, and lounging in the sun made the hours simply fall away.  We at CrossFit Roots have spring fever.

That’s why THIS THURSDAY we are holding SPRING FLING!

Thursday marks the close of the CrossFit Open with the final 12.5 workout.  We’re going to blow the top off and combine it with a Spring Fling celebration, happy hour, get together, wear your sundress, come hang out and kick your feet over the edge of the garage door kind of shindig.

Come celebrate the past 5-week Open season and welcome in daylight savings.  Didn’t do the Open?  Who cares!  Come be festive and merry and mingle with the Roots crew.

Wings and Wine!

 Stefanie took a moment to reflect on the highlights for her of the Open competition season: 

  • Being a part of one of the largest teams in the region.  75 Roots athletes signed up to compete in the Open making us the 3rd largest team in the SW Region!
  • Watching athletes hit a pr on their push press (only to hit it again 23 more times)
  • Seeing competitors achieve numbers they never thought possible, time and time again. (I have a feeling there will be fewer 6lb wallballs used in future workouts)
  • Witnessing new athletes who have never competed in the open partnering up with veterans to strategize on the workouts and commiserate about sore quads and smoked shoulders
  • NOT seeing any member of the open training group in a Speedo or thong (I realize that this is a dangerous comment to make knowing there is still a week left)

Is there anything or anyone that stood out to you this Open season?  Post to comments.
