On our way to LA

We cannot thank everyone enough for all of the great support this weekend. Whether it was through posting on the blog, email, text, or in person each of you gave us a reason to fight. Team Southie finished 2nd out of the 30 top teams in the Northeast. On June 12th,13th, and 14th we will be competing in LA at the Home Depot Center at the world championships. This is like the Olympics for CrossFitters, we spectated last year (17 of us went) and it was one of my favorite weeks of my life…seriously. This year the team will be staying together, away from drinking an partying so we can focus. However, we would love to know that we have a group of Southie peeps there to cheer us on. If you are interested in flying out for the CrossFit Games please post to comments “in for LA”. Then maybe you all can find one common place to stay and coordinate rooms. We are sooooooooo pumped! 6 weeks 🙂

    I came up from Long Island to watch the regionals and suport a local athlete (Daniel Tyminski). Your team caught my eye and I have to say you were truly inspiring. I look forward to watching your progress in the games. You proved you have what it takes. Best of luck!

    I don’t even know what to say, I think I told you all enough times how psyched/proud/amazed I was. Thanks for giving us such an awesome weekend.

    Way to bring the beast mode! You guys were so amazing! I was seriously inspired, and I wish I could make it to LA!

    By the way, it says June 12-14 on the post, but isn’t it July?

    Hey guys! Words can’t even say how happy and proud I am of these 6 people. You guys deserve this win that you worked and fought so hard for. I remember last summer at the Games when we all went to watch, Maze said, “I refuse to come here next year and just watch.” Now you guys are going to friggin compete in the Crossfit Games!!! I love you all and can’t wait to cheer you on again! Seth and I will hopefully be IN FOR LA!!!
