In CrossFit, each year there's an Open. During the Open, any athlete can register and compete. They release a new workout each week and you have four days to complete it and submit your score. The most elite will be chosen to go on to the next level of competition.
The Open is so much fun and we all participate each year even though none of us have a hope or a prayer of making it to the next round. But it's just one more way we can come together as a community and do something we enjoy. Our gym hosts a Friday Night Lights event each Friday during the Open where we all do the workout together and then go do something fun afterwards.
These athletes, man. They're so inspiring! We have first timers and veterans competing this year and it was such a joy watching each and every one of them push themselves to new levels!
It's hard to pick favorites -- mainly because I have hundreds of photos from each night, but here are a few of mine!
