It's here!! Showdown to Save the Shore was today!! My box put on this event and I am SUPER stoked how much of a turn out they have. I had SUCH a good time with my Aspire friends! I really do love my box and all the people I have met from there. Above are some shots as people were getting there and getting signed in. Our WOD was 8 minutes -- 300m sprint row followed by AMRAP 5 pull-ups, 5 ring dips and 10 burpees. I got to stay on my grey bands and a red band for the ring dips.
After we finished our WOD, we had skill stations to work -- clearly I still have a TON of skill stuff to work on -- 5 stations - as many wallballs in 3 minutes BUT they had to be unbroken and you had to hit the mark (we have stickers on our wall), L-sit on the rings, as many rope climbs in 3 minutes, as many unbroken muscle ups as possible and handstand holds! I got a minute on the handstand hold. I could have held longer, but for every minute you did you have to do a handstand push-up and I don't have those yet. haha! Leah (in the black) got her first kick up handstand and held for 30 seconds. Jordana (who is also my gymnastics coach and the reason I could hold it for a minute) held it for I think somewhere around 5 minutes. She's awesome!!
Also, Leah got her L-sit on the rings. She kept saying that she couldn't do it. But she totally did. I have it on video too! Somehow I will figure how to get it up here!
In total, this event raised $2,000 for the Red Cross for Sandy Relief! AWESOME!!
