...and I'm back!

I apologize for the complete lack of updates. I've pretty much plateaued and was in no mood for anything. But let me update you!

I ended up getting free tickets to the CrossFit Games 2013 for the Friday events. Let me tell you, seeing the top elite athletes is so humbling and inspiring. I had the gold access pass so I got to be at the heart of the events.

On August 3rd, I competed in my first Powerlifting Meet. Check out the footage here! I know exactly what I need to work on, and I'm so blessed to have my brother, closest friends, and my Ero family there to support me.

In case you didn't watch the video, I got 3rd place. Ryan, an Ero bro, was SO close and was in 4th place. And that's out of 20+ men! There were maybe 7-8 women who participated. Considering it was my first meet, apparently I have lots to be proud of! 

Just last week, I headed out to Baltimore, Maryland to visit someone I've never met, but been pretty close to for the past 10+ years. We spent time planning her party, bonding, eating (a lot for me, lol), and she took me to the Harbor. As much as I want to say I LOVED the trip, it was rather bittersweet for me. Things happen that's out of our control that really put me in a bad mood. I mosdef enjoyed Angel's company! It would be nice to meet again, except in a different area... Maybe LA? LOL.

I went back to work yesterday, and it was a breeze. No matter where I go, it's always nice to be home. I ended up picking up my packet for a 5k tonight, and with much talk with my Ero Kuya (Sig), I decided to WOD. I'm glad I did. Although I wasn't at my best and strongest, I'm glad I got back in there. But let me tell you... I am NEVER taking a week off again, and if I do take a week off from CrossFit, vacation or not... MUST. STAY. ACTIVE.
