Don’t forget: this Saturday is our May MOMP (Middle of the Month Party)! At 9:00, bring all of your friends and family down for a fun workout along with some hanging out and eating/drinking afterwards, weather permitting. The workout is free for everyone, so if you’re a 3x/week member and you’ve been dying to get in on a Saturday workout, now’s your chance! Since this is a Regionals weekend, we’ll have the TV hooked up to watch some badass folks work out all weekend long.
Today, we’re going to send some good happy thoughts across the pond to Copenhagen, Denmark. One of our favorite FoZes (Friend of Zenith) is going to be competing in the European Regionals for the CrossFit Games! Most of you haven’t gotten the chance to meet her yet, as she’s been in France for a year or so now (time escapes me), but those of you who went to CFNH certainly know Annie DeSaussure.
AnnieD joined up with the Reebok CrossFit Louvre box when she moved out to Paris and she’s been doing some really awesome work out there. For the first couple of workouts in the CrossFit Open, she was even in a position to qualify as an individual! We couldn’t be more proud of Annie and all that she’s accomplished, both before the transatlantic move and after. Unfortunately, their team is a little banged up going into the Regionals, and these workouts are something you don’t want to tackle even if you’re at 100%.
The other bad news is, being in Denmark, the live broadcast of the team heats starts at three in the morning. Yikes. So if you’re reading this on Friday, go over to games.crossfit.com and see if they have the archives up yet for the team competition. You’re going to be looking for Team Reebok CrossFit Louvre in lane 9 Heat 1 in the two events. Annie will be the tall girl with a taped up elbow.
Good luck Annie!
