Throwdown Results and Other Events

Thank you to all of the volunteers this weekend. We most definitely could not have done it without you. You all are amazing.

Congratulations to all of the competitors, especially to those of you that were first time competitors. Pretty much every person that we talked to PR’d on their clean and jerk. Simply incredible. We are very proud of all of you. Thanks for participating and giving it your best.

The results before going into the last event can be found here. After the fourth RX workout the top 3 results were:

1. Bish
2. Mullins
3. Crowley

1. Mel Mott
2. Julie
3. Sarah Sinsac

I am really proud of our community, and I hope that we continue to participate in events as a large group. That being said, the next 2 weekends we have 2 big events and we need your support! First, the Harpoon 5-miler this Sunday and then the REGIONAL competition on memorial day weekend at the Reebok Headquarters.

Harpoon:

CrossFit Southie is teaming up with Harpoon at the Harpoon 5-miler this Sunday, May 20th to help raise money for the Angel Fund. The Angel Fund  is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting ALS investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research, internationally recognized for its ground-breaking work in the fight against this devastating illness.

Corey Johnson works over at Harpoon and had the idea to get our community involved. The Harpoon races are always full with Southie residents who like to stay fit just like you and me. We want to give these people the opportunity to get a taste of CrossFit and show them how much fun we have.

There are two activities to sign up for:

1. Bet on the athletes: Every 15 minutes there will be a face-off between 2 athletes. To sign up for this you need to be an experienced crossfitter with pretty good form with most movements. A short WOD will be pulled out of the hopper and spectators will bet on who they think will take the wod. Winners will get some beer tickets, and possibly a t-shirt.

2. Participant Challenge: This will hopefully consist of a sandbag run, or a row, and burpees. 5 people can sign up at a time. They must make a donation to participate. I will need volunteers to run these heats, take down the best times, and receive the donations.

Please click here (just type your name into the bracket) to sign-up for a face-off or to volunteer at the tent.  This is a really great opportunity to raise money for a good cause, show our local community what CrossFit is all about, and hang out with the CrossFit Southie crew. There will be lots of beers flowing, and I am sure as you can imagine…lots of entertainment.

Regionals:

This is the biggest competition of the year. Myself, Haley, Andrea, TJ, Maze and Gooseman will all be competing as a team on May 26th, 27th, and 28th. We have been training year round for this and we really would like to have as many supporters as imaginable at this event. I  realize that a lot of you will be away for the long weekend, but if you are around please come support even if it is only for 1 hour, 1 day. We have a chance to make the top 3 and continue on to the crossfit games in LA. Let’s show the Northeast how strong our community is! Last year we all had a blast, it was really cool to watch.

WOD 1
3 Rounds
200m sandbag carry
20 Burpees

    Sandbag Run/Burpees: 7:42
    2k Row: 7:25.1

    My burpees are WHACK. My rowing is NICE.

    I’ll be on-call for work Regionals weekend but I’m going to try to be there all 3 days (Yeah 3 days, I don’t expect Team Southie to get knocked out early). I hope there is some FOOD this year. The ball was totally dropped on that last year. So many people attended last year and all there was to eat were some salads and pbj’s (I crushed those pb&j’s). Such a wasted opportunity to make some $$$$$. Can I get a sausage or something?

    Saturday was so much fun!!! I did my first rope climb and first two chest to bar pullups ever. Thanks for the judges for being so supportive throughout the WODs, and for all the cooks for making paleo magic happen. Can’t wait until the next one!

    That was a riot! Thanks to all you guys for putting in the time, effort, and intensity. I heard someone say that your first competition changes you, and I think that’s true. Congrats to everyone for taking it to the next level!

    And is that my C&J face? Man, oh, man, that’s a face only a coach could love.

    Oh ya some great weekends coming up. Can’t wait to cheer on the Southie competitors at Regionals.

    Hey, everyone! Awesome job this weekend, I truly can’t wait for the next competition. I am also looking forward to Thursday night, Haymakers For Hope. I was hoping to get a group of CFS athletes together before hand so we can all go cheer on Matt, Jaime and all the other fighters as a group. Im thinking Game On for a few pre-fight pops. Let me know if your interested so we can nail down a time.

    I had a damn good time judgeing this event!! The positive energy was all around; and the heart and spirit shown by the competitors was beyond impressive. Amy and Goose, thanks for working hard to put it all together.
