At the Games, Day 5…

Today was the first day that I had a chance to sit back and really take in the pure “fan” experience at the Games. Vendor village was open and rocking, the crowd was WAY bigger, and we’d get a chance to not only see the teams but the individual competitors do their thing.
Don’t get me wrong, its a BLAST to be under the gun as a coach when you’ve got an athlete competing on the worlds highest stage, but I LOVE CrossFit – love to do it, love to coach it, and I love to watch it. So when I was asked by my housemates if I’d be going to the StubHub Center at 7am to watch more events kickoff (even after having gotten there at 6:45am every other day) or sleep in, I unquestionably said I’d be going to watch!
This whole experience thus far has given me a TON of new blog ideas to go along with the ones each of you have requested, so look out for those. Along with my recap of Jay’s incredible performance – I know you’re all dying to hear about the behind the scenes stuff…that is coming to. Truth be told, I’m pretty sure I spent much of the day today looking like a drained zombie – its been go go go and my body welcomed a break. Now I just need more sleep.
But without further ado, here are some fun Games candid shots:

This is Jen Smith – what in incredibly performance during Murph. She hurt her foot really bad earlier this week and still did this entire workout. On her way back in during the final mile, the crowd cheering for her was absolutely electric. I had goosebumps…in 100 degree temps!
