Beast of the East Recap

Thanks to everyone for coming out to such a great event hosted by CFNE on Saturday.  The overwhelming support and smiling faces from the Southie crew made the day much easier for all of our competitors.  “Big Crusty” aka “The Bear” aka “Bubble Jacket” Mark Urso continues to shine on game day as he dominated “DT” and took home 7th overall in the competition!  Pat “Mr. Rambo” Padgett continues to improve with each competition.  He put up an impressive performance in the Double Under/Thruster WOD and an even more impressive performance on the dance floor of Tequilla Rain, teaching everyone how to Dougie later on that night.  He finished 18th overall on the day.  First time competitor Brian Fenton had one of the fastest 500m row times on the day, although he didn’t account for the 4oom he had to run immediately after it.  He showed a lot of heart in his first competition taking home 6oth, rounding out the top half of all the male competitors.  Your favorite female Coach, Amy Ferro,  continues to move up the ranks as a serious female competitor.  She was able to throw 105lbs around with the best of the women during the first event, which was inconceivable only a short time ago.  She also showed much more efficiency with skill movements such as pull ups and box jumps.  She placed 19th on the day.  Coach Chris (me) finished 15th on the day and enjoyed nearly every minute of it, except of course for those 10+ minutes of “DT.”  Thanks again for all of your support.

    Good event but I think I lost my car between the rowing machines and the 10 rep snatches….

    Yah, congrats to all our competitors, you guys did amazing. I was blown away by how competitive the times were and you guys all still great. And thanks to all the spectators who came out and showed support. It really makes a difference when you’re out there working your butt off, as Chris Farley said in BILLY MADISON, “I would know dude, from experience”. Hopefully some of you caught the competitive itch as Big Mark above said. If you’re interested, CF Games sectionals are only a few months away…

    I would also like to thank everyone who came and supported us, the southie crew for representing hard in the top 20 and to Goose and Ames for having such a kick ass box….great times. I cannot wait to compete again and catch Mr. Bubble Jacket.

    I had someone come up to me and ask me “how does CF southie have so many sick crossfitters when its only been open for a couple months?”…my response: “because we are awesome”.

    Yay! Nice work – fun times. Did the pics turn out?

    great job all around. that first worked out look like a killer. I’m sorry I didn’t stick around longer but the “next generation” told me it was time to go and she is the boss.

    How did I end up w. the Bubble Jacket nickname? When I got there, I thought Ferro was still wearing her Marty McFly Halloween costume or something? Just wanted to echo Goose’s sentiments, I really appreciate everyone’s support throughout the entire day. CFS support rolls deep, the athletes represented, and I am pretty sure a few Southie spectators caught the competitive itch. Looking forward to Sectionals… maybe I’ll stop being sore by then. Lastly, I will never miss another late night Dougie tutorial.
