I watched every minute I could of this year’s Crossfit Games and a couple of things stood out for me.  The male, female, and team champions all placed 2nd last year.  That’s the power of a year spent hungry for excellence.  I was inspired by Rich Froening’s insane capacity and was cheering for Annie T all the way but for me the real story was the Masters.  I want to be those guys one day.  Fit, strong, healthy, and a grandparent.  It will be awesome to redefine what aging is.  And one other thing I want to be…on a team competing on the last day of the Games.  2012????

Great article on Crossfit Games results.
