Coolest Workout I've Ever Done

Thursday the guys from SeeFit:Road2theCure stopped at CrossFit Lake Charles.  Out of all the boxes in the nation, they chose 14 to stop in and our little ol' box was one! 

When I walked in around 5:00 PM, the box was buzzing.  The energy was awesome!  After signing up and giving a donation, I was given a scorecard to keep up with my reps at each of the 8 mini-wods.  The guys talked me into doing prescribed rather than scaled so I could see where I fall against the other athletes.

At each of the 8 stations, one of the SeeFit guys would judge and count your reps.  They were so nice and encouraging, which is typical in the CrossFit community.  So far, 73 female athletes scores are posted.  Below is my ranking.  The DNF is because I'm not able to do an unassisted pull up and was competing in the prescribed division.  (I did complete 21 unbroken pull ups with bands.)

As I was working on my max clean and jerk, I looked over to see this.


The whole box stopped what they were doing and rallied for Mitch as he clean and jerked a ridiculous amount of weight (335#!).  My SeeFit judge told me, "If that doesn't inspire you, I don't know what will."  I told him he should see Mitch's wife!

After completing all 8 mini-wods, I didn't want to leave because I was having so much fun! But I had been there an hour and a half and promised a friend I would be done by 7:00 so we could watch a movie. 

Thanks SeeFit guys!  You are doing an awesome thing by raising money for a great cause, but you are also bringing unbelievable energy and lots of fun to the boxes you visit.  Come back to CFLC anytime.
