The Turning Point

2008 Crossfit Games 3rd workout of the Day Saturday July 5th Aromas Ca.
My last W.O.D of the day on Saturday was 5 275.lbs Deadlift and 10 Burpees 5 Rounds for time . I had just come of a 4.12 minute Fran not Fran Fran(my new name for 21 15 9 Thrusters Pull up chest to the bar) with that time I had given up one minute to Speal and 30 - 40 seconds to the rest of the field. I knew if I was going to compete for the top 5 spots I had to make a move. I finished the deadlift workout in Two minutes and 55 seconds this time keep me in the comp. At this point my attitude changed and I was ready to attack the final workout and make a move.

I happened to be standing behind you (behind the fence) for your clean and jerks at the crossfit games.

Impressive work (and nice scream too).

At the time I didn't realize that we had a Texas boy in the top three. Had I known that I would have paid more attention, but it was hard to miss the your amazing effort (not to mention the posse of large men cheering you on.)

Not only did you put out an incredible perfomance at the games, but you clearly have an outstanding Crossfit gym affiliate in one of the best cities in the country. I find myself in Austin from time to time and hope to stop in someday.

And as an aside, I think one of our crossfitters up here, Catherine Fischer has been to your place. Don't know if you know her or not, but as Troy Dodson (Crossfit Plano owner) says: she's a hoss (in a good way).
