What are the CrossFit Games?

“In implementation, this looks like sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.

The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit Co-Founder & CEO
3, 2, 1 — GO!

The Games are over and the results are in!

The Top Female CrossFitter for 2008 is Caity Matter of Gahanna, OH, where she trains with Rogue Fitness. Tanya Wagner took second place and Gillian Mounsey took third.

The Top Male CrossFitter for 2008 is Jason Khalipa of CrossFit Unlimited in Milpitas, CA. Josh Everett came in second, with Jeremy Thiel in third.

The Affiliate Cup was won by the team from CrossFit Oakland.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the volunteers, spectators, and competitors for a great weekend!

The crew from CrossFit Front Range, including Mike Pistono, Cori Gobel, Sean Roeper, Jodi Miller, and Matt Griffin, are training hard for the Games. After their oxygen-deprived atmosphere, the Games events should be a piece of cake! (Or not...)

Have the NorCal fires affected the CrossFit Games? The news videos are pretty heinous. Our San Diego fires last year made the air pretty bad. How is the air in Aroma?

Wildfire Health Advisory Lifted
The Bay Area Air District is lifting the health advisory that was in place for five days last week and through the weekend, due to high particulate levels from the Northern California wildfires.

However, Aromas is just south of Santa Clara county (and the Bay Area). All I can say is that the air quality on the Peninsula (about 70 miles north) has dramatically changed for the better in the last 48 hours.

Finally, I just talked to my sister in Santa Cruz and it is still smokey but the sun came out a little and it is getting better each day.

Other than a little increase in boogers, the air is not that bad and getting better daily.

Boogers? Is that a marketing term I am heretofore unfamiliar with? Ha! Hope no one gets a fatal case . . . .
