First Place. Leave No Doubt. #BlackTide

1) I am proud to announce that Team CrossFit Central took 1st Place at the 2013 RedDirt CrossFit Classic. The team was comprised of 2 men: Jeff Vanlandingham and Reid Reagan – and 2 women: Chelsea Ross and Karen Pierce.

Jeff and Reid have been students of mine for some time now — and have developed more over the past 2 years than I have ever seen two athletes develop. Chelsea – similarly – has made a name for herself on the Regional scene, placing 17th at the 2013 CF Regionals in San Antonio. Karen is a long-time badass, teammate and training partner of mine. She is literally one of the strongest and fittest women that I know.


While it does not surprise me that these four would win (and dominate) the competition, it does make me extremely proud. These four are dedicated and determined to make a mark this year and will all compete for spots on Team CrossFit Central as we head into the 2014 Season.

Look for them in local and national competitions as they continue to improve and show up to throw down.

Happy and proud of you guys. Much love from your Coach.

2) Congratulations are also in order for Adam Hawkins and the boys and girls from 918 CrossFit who placed 5th overall in the team division. Adam wrote me a while back and told me that some of his individuals and team members have been following the blog for some time now. Team Central met them this weekend and said they put up in a big way. Congrats to you guys — keep up the hard work.

3) I believe everyone PR’d their Helen time last week (except for me…:-(). Well-done to all of you. There are days when someone does something really special… Sometimes it comes out of nowhere and sometimes it is expected, but either way it leaves your jaw on the floor. I want to give a HUGE shout-out to Coach Teo Ledesma for hitting the first SUB-7 HELEN I have ever been witness to (or even heard of) in the great state of Texas. 6:44. Boom. Who says you can’t get stronger and fitter at the same time? These days, it seems as if all the “classic” CF WODs are being done faster and faster… A 2-min Diane? A Sub-2 Fran? A 5-minute Jackie?

Teo is pushing the limits… Time for us to catch up.

    Wouldn’t say we were dominate. There was one other team which was stacked with individual regional competitors (Kameron Rosenau, Kristen Rosenau and Brad King – look up there stuff of the leaderboard its impressive). Will spare all the details but they could have easily been on top of the podium had things shook out differently. For example we got the exact same time in a workout with 400 reps (10:19) and by exact same, I mean we were in side-by-side lanes and dropped the bar at the same time. Think Karen is blogging up a storm about it now.
