CrossFit Games 2012

With the finish of the CrossFit Games 2012 yesterday, today seemed like a good day to finally recap my participation in the 2012 Open. Just a few months late on that. šŸ™‚

Here’s a shot of my final standings in the Mid-Atlantic:

I’m particularly proud of my score of 60 on week 2’sĀ  snatch ladder. I managed to maintain pretty nice form through the whole workout. After recovering, I snatched 93# once, and then 98# once to cap off the day. Best of the 5 weeks for me, for sure. šŸ™‚

Week 4, I got two birds with one stone. Since I hadn’t ever done “Karen”, I was able to get a time for that WOD, plus complete workout 12.4.

Through my years of CrossFit blogging, I’ve made some friends. One in particular is my CrossFit twin — our times, loads and PRs are all eerily similar (except she can deadlift a LOT more than me :)). So at the end of the Open, one of my favorite moments was bringing her and I up in the Compare Athletes tool on the Games website.

Yes, she’s 18 years older than me. Talk about in-your-face proof that age is just a number, especially when it comes to CrossFit!

  1. Hey! I came over to your blog to look for something else you wrote the other day and I saw this post as I was poking around. I needed to see this today!! Age is just a number, but I’ve let it get in my head lately!! This was a wake up call of sorts – I’m constantly competing with people anywhere from 10 to 30 years younger than me and I hold myself to way to high of a standard some days. I loved being your CrossFit Twin. šŸ™‚
