WHAT A DAY!!!!
A very special thanks to:
1.  Meegs – organizing and running one of the best CF comp’s i’ve seen
2.  James “OPT” Fitzgerald – creating these challenging, top notch WODs and for being the foundation of my programming methodology.
3.  The numerous volunteer judges and helpers. who made this go so fairly and smoothly
4.  the CROWD of CFHR athletes, friends and family who showed up to cheer on the competitors
5.  Matt Shannon (owner of CrossFit 1776 in Williamsburg) and the 1776 athletes who showed up to tryout the WODs after the competition.
6. The INCREDIBLE, MOTIVATING, COMPETITIVE ATHLETES!!!
This event was damn near flawless.  We lost a few 5lb bumpers and had to get creative with loading a few bars, but it all went off without a hitch.  Sportsmanship, cameraderie, motivation and INTENSITY!!
