CrossFit SW Regionals

I don't know how, but somehow I made the team. The gym Sarah and I belong to, Crossfit Works, put together a team of trainers and members to compete in the Affiliate Cup of the 2010 CrossFit Games. This Regional competition would determine which individuals and teams will go on to compete in the Games.
Our region includes Arizona and Southern California. If you know 1 thing about CrossFit, know that SoCal is the birthplace of CrossFit and there are some powerhouses that come out of there.
The teams had to be 4-6 people and have at least 2 men and 2 women. Our team consisted of 4 of the CF Works trainers (Jenny, Kate, Andres, & Mateo) and 2 members (Summer and I). We didn't have a lot of time to train together, but we all were excited to go hard and have fun.
The event was held at UC Irvine, a palmtree covered campus in Orange County. There were more Crossfitters in that athletic complex than I've ever seen before and it was awesome!
We competed in 3 workouts. We had fun, held our own, and finished midway in the field of 80 teams there to compete. Not bad considering some of the teams have been competeing together for years!
Here are some photos of the weekend.
