Day 1 Recap: North Central Regional
Affiliate and master's workouts kick off the weekend
Here is the report from the Douglas County Events Center in Castle Rock, Colorado for day one of the Northcentral Regional competition. Organizer Skip Miller of Front Range CrossFit sent the following update.
The first day of competition closed with the third Affiliate workout, the team triplet – 3000m row, 50 muscle-ups and 200 over head squats. It capped a day marked by blazing times in the team suicide run, 200+ pound snatches by multiple athletes in the team snatch, and performances worthy of people half their age in the master’s competitors.
Just before the 4pm final team workout, the main competition space was calm. Some athletes where getting final warm up reps on the central muscle-up cage, but no one was touching the overhead squat bars or the rowers. Then right at 4pm the center erupted into motion and noise. Teams threw themselves at the problem with energy, enthusiasm and some creative strategy. CrossFit Thin Air and Roaring Fork CrossFit distinguished themselves for having men on their teams who did OHS like metronomes.
The second heat had its first inverted kip muscle-up, women who could have put on a clinic in OHS technique, and the fastest time of the day (10:52) by CrossFit Castle Rock. The final heat had some of the top ranked teams in the event and the competition did not disappoint. CrossFit Omaha clocked the fastest time of that day at 10:46, Brother’s CrossFit got second and Atlas CrossFit came in third.
The top 16 teams going on to the Affiliate Final on Sunday are now posted on the results site:
The individual competition starts tomorrow, with the first heats starting at 8:00am.

That's me in the snatch picture - 115lb PR, old PR was 103lbs. I have to say quite honestly that this was one of the happiest moments of my life. Thank you to CrossFit for giving me something to strive for.
