Weekend recap from Gregg Arsenuk.
The following report on the New York/New Jersey Sectional comes from Gregg Arsenuk of Guerilla Fitness.
"The NY/NJ Sectional is in the record books, sending 30 men and 30 women to the Crossfit Regional in Albany, NY. The chipper on day 2 was a formidable challenge for the competitors as heat after heat left athletes sprawled on the mats. Crossfitters of the northeast made this weekend a tremendous success. Volunteers gave selflessly for 2 very full days. Judges were on point and the competitors put on a fantastic show."

I would like to thank Gregg and everyone at Guerilla Fitness for making this weekend an experience I will never forget. As a non-affiliate crossfitter, training in my garage day after day, I was humbled to participate alongside such amazing athletes. Looking forward to competing again next year!

Congrats to all the competitors. What an amazing mental and physical feat. Special congratulations to my sister, Karianne, who has accomplished so much since that day in 1996 when she yelled "F - you" at me for making her run! Love you!

You all don't have a clue as to how much I appreciate your kind words. We may have had a plan but, executing it took the cooperation of staff and athletes.

This weekend ranks with some of the most amazing experiences I've had in my life. Literally right up there with the birth of my two children....and way more painful!
The capacity of the human spirit is astounding. It was evident in each competitor and it was an honor to be up against the thresholds of pain along side each of you. Judges, the energy and integrity you gave each athlete as if they were the only one each and every time is not something to be overlooked. It is hard work to give of yourself like that.
To the crew at GFCM, it is easy to take for granted how well you did with the event because everything was on track and as athletes we never felt like you skipped a beat. I realize that any added stress due to poor planning on the part of the host would have had such an impact on athletes who were already taxed. Thank you for hours of planning and for the attention to every detail.
I look forward to seeing everyone at Regionals, I am so glad to have spent 2 days with all of you.
