Second, I have to say that I am (once again) filled with a huge sense of pride over the effort that everyone put into the Open this year. There were so many moments I can point to: Natalie Detar-Koch getting a single rep PR on13.4, Eric Schenck crushing 13.5 - TWICE!, Jess getting 5th in the region on 13.2, so many of you digging deep to do these crazy WODs twice - and getting better scores every time! I am inspired by all of you! Your efforts gives me even more determination to improve my own performance as an athlete, and to improve FCCF in every way I can.
Personally, there have been many lessons I am taking away from the 2013 Open. There is a lot we will be doing in the coming year as a gym, and in the Games Prep program, that will make us even better prepared for 2014. For those who are still feeling a bit disappointed, don't forget the feeling, but don't dwell on it either. Take some time to look back on the Open and figure out what you need to work on in the coming year.
Let's celebrate with Jess, and do everything we can as a community to help her get ready for Regionals. Canton get ready.... McNinja and her posse are coming!!!! -Jeff
