We did it! Yesterday Andy, Alyssa, Athena, Chris, Craig, Heather, Kenny and myself competed in the 3rd annual Eastern Shore Affiilate Challenge and had an awesome time. It was the first CrossFit competition for any of us, and so there was a lot to be experienced for the first time: the adrenaline-fueled bug-eyed feeling before your heat of each WOD, the thrill of finishing a workout and reporting your time to the judges, and the disappointment of not winning the whole damn thing!
I think every one of our competitors got at least one new personal record in the individual WODs at the Challenge, too! Personally, I hit a PR in the mile run (6:14) and was disappointed in my finish in the Snatch Ladder (135lbs). If you got a new PR in the Mile or Snatch, post a comment- it’s not bragging, we all want to know!
After the Individual WODs were complete, we had two athletes in the top 10: Alyssa was the #3 Female and Andy was the #8 Male! Woohoo!!
In the final portion of the Challenge, we were eliminated in the first round of three, and CF Salisbury (starring Alyssa’s sister Lisa) won for the second straight year. Great job to Lisa, Adam, Cam and the CF Salisbury team!
Denee and the kids were along as cheerleaders and logistical officers, and got a couple sweet pics, check ’em out.
Overall, I can’t wait for next year’s ESAC, but I can’t wait that long to get another competition under my belt. This experience has lit a fire in my belly again to reach the peak of my athleticism and compete to win these things. I hope that some of you are with me in wanting to compete, and fully understand that some might not be. Either way, we will continue to focus on getting work done at CFKI and making each other better every day!

I am sooooo proud of everyone!!!! What a fun competition that was made even better due to the team comradery we showed for each other at our first competition! Definitely looking forward to getting back in the box and getting some work done to improve.
As far as PRs go, I got a new PR in the mile run (6 min 23 seconds) and new PR on the Snatch at 103 lbs!
Good work again to everyone! Go CFKI!!!
We did great I thought. I was disappointed about my mile I felt like I could of gone faster, but I did pr at 7 minutes and 4 seconds. In addition, I pr on my snatch ladder at 53lbs. I can’t wait for next year, I have a feeling that We will give Salisbury a run for the CUP!! GO CFKI!!!!
