Regional Wrap-up

The Southeast Regionals is over. It was a brutal three days and at the end, the CFVB athletes came out with the following rankings:

– Rachel 16th
– Marco 14th
– Wendy 8th

Only the top 3 athletes moved on to the Games. There were amazing performances of athleticism, new friends were made and we all suprosed ourselves in what we could accomplish.

We want to thank Cameron, Joe, Rizza, Jenn, Greg, Neil, Jesse, Charlie, Sue, Bryan and Diane for coming up to support us. It was great to have a cheering section!

Now…let's start training for 2012!

    Thanks for all the support. This was the most brutal three days ever. I’ve never been so sore.
    And don’t worry, we won’t be programming the 100 pull-up/100 KB swing/100 dubs/100 OH squat workout EVER.
