I’m so glad you are enjoying the recaps of The CrossFit Games. I seriously struggled trying to translate the excitement and athleticism I witnessed into words.
We left off with the Fittest on Earth taking their respective places on the podium.

I’m really proud of CrossFit Omaha athletes representing with the 12th fittest woman and 3rd fittest man.

It will be fun to see them at the box training now that Coach and I have joined.
Reebok generously provided all the fans FREE food and beverages post-ceremony, so there was quite a gathering. Joe and I did one last run through the expo, but everything was pretty much packed up.
We raced around the stadium and finally located the athletes. All of the men were still there, so Joe asked them,
I asked her the following:
- What she plans to do tomorrow
- How many rest days she plans to take
- Is her training cyclical in nature.
Disregard my overly loud voice-sorry! Julie was so sweet and patient…and gorgeous, girl crush? Maybe.
Joe followed up with a few more questions to Rich Froning, and asked if he could wear the gold medal (I embellish).
So, what does the Fittest Man on Earth eat after 4 days of intense competition?
Pizza of course! Paleo, what? I appreciated seeing that. You can’t be on point ALL-THE-TIME.
The momentum from the Games followed me home where Coach and I hit up CrossFit.
