Day 261 of 365: Cali, Baby!

What’s up!?!

We got in to L.A. yesterday afternoon and spent the remaining part of the day getting settled in and organizing the next couple of days.  We are all super stoked to finally be here….It actually feels real now.  Hahaha.

Today was a pretty cool experience.  The first thing on the list was, of course, BREAKFAST!  It was great having everyone around one stove and kitchen table.  The energy from this group is outstanding.

As soon as the important business was taken care of, we headed to the registration headquarters to check-in and pick up all of our sweet new Reebok gear!  I gotta say, I’m not really a huge fan of Reebok fitness apparel.  That being said, we got decked-out with some badass stuff!  Unfortunately, the CrossFit/Reebok high-ups have decided to go with a NEON theme this year. As you all know, I live in the black, white and gray world.  I go all black everything, everyday.  So, this new bright color theme is going to be a test of my ability to match my clothes each day.  It’s gonna be ugly….

Once the schwag-fest was over, we headed to South Bay CrossFit to meet our coach, Rudy Neilsen for more “testing” of certain components of the weekend’s festivities.  It was an excellent session at a badass box that had everyone, Rudy included, giddy with excitement as to the prospect of where we will be standing by the end of the 2012 Games.

Tomorrow is going to be more of the same.  “Testing” and certain obligations will take up most of the day, so I really appreciate your understanding of the uncertain nature of my posts over the next couple of days.  I will keep you posted the best I can.  Feel free to follow me on Twitter @Strict_Strength…I plan to step up my game a bit leading up to the first WOD, and do what I can while the workouts are going down.
