An Epic Day

From the camaraderie , no quit attitude and pure athleticism, to the volunteers who gave hours of their time, to altruistic sponsors, to the 8 inches of snow, to the pain we all empathized, this event was epic.

Luckily, the snow didn’t start coming down until after most competitors arrived. We had about 15 no shows, but as expected, CrossFitters don’t take shit from no one, not even a blizzard. While the rest of Charlottesville sat at home and feared the storm, we braved it.

Together we witnessed athletes pull well over 380 tons from the ground (1.5 tons per minute), press 121 tons overhead and deliver sweat, blood and tears to amazed onlookers.
