This coming weekend is the 2016 California CrossFit Regional! Here's what our lady Colleen will be coming up against this weekend:
While anticipation is building in athletes and spectators alike, Colleen wanted me to pass along a message of gratitude to you all:
I wanted to take this opportunity, especially before the chaos of regionals begins, to thank each and every one of you for making the united barbell community what it is. I've been to a lot of CrossFit gyms and yet United Barbell is the only one that truly feels like home. Every year when the CrossFit games season rolls around I tend to get a bit stressed (huge understatement ). The training gets harder and staying mentally in the game becomes a challenge evey day.
Ever since I joined UB I've always felt supported, but this year has been different. I have been overwhelmed by the love and support that everyone has shown throughout the entire year. Even the littlest bit of encouragement during a brutal workout or cracking a joke to make me smile means the world to me.
While I will be competing as an individual I truly feel as if I'm going into this weekend as part of a team and I'm extremely proud to be repping UB! So again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your unconditional support, it really means more than you know!
I think I can safely speak on behalf of our entire community when I say -- It was our pleasure Colleen! You are part of the family!
