Coach KHarpz at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge
Here’s a Coach KHarpz recap of last weekend’s competition:
This past weekend at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge was my favorite team competition yet, mostly due to our awesome team dynamic. My team was super smart about strategizing, we practiced together a lot, they were good communicators, and most importantly we laughed CONSTANTLY. There are a lot of factors that go into building a successful team, and the lessons that I took away from this weekend were valuable.
Personally, I couldn’t have been more pumped about my performance. I Power Clean and Jerked 203 lb for a 10 lb PR, handled the Rogue Worm with respect, and was conditioned enough to keep up with my teammates. We made it to the finals, and FINALLY got to put all of my Muscle-Up work to the test in competition. We finished in 10th overall of 40 teams in the Rx division. WooHOO! Looking forward to taking some time off to get stronger, work on my aerobic capacity, and focus on some other hobbies for a bit!
Nice work, Katie! Check out Instagram for more photos from the event.
