October was the craziest month ever. Started with a competition in Minnesota, The Granite Games. This event was incredibly well organized, the programming was top notch, volunteers and event staff were completely professional and the athletes were a blast to compete with. I think I really needed an enjoyable and fun competitive experience to see how things could and should be. This was it. Thank you to John Swanson, Tyler Quinn and everyone else involved with this event.
The following week I was in Europe for a short visit. If you’ve never flown Virgin Atlantic, you should. Between the food and entertainment, the flight is like a mini vacation in itself.I saw the usual sites in London,
and eat some reindeer. I thought my son would be mortified when he heard about this meal, but he asked if I would bring him some to try. Next time, buddy.After returning from Europe I had the distinct honor of running my own weightlifting and gymnastics seminar at CrossFit BRX in Miami, Florida. So grateful to Shawn Ramirez and Billy Caldwell for making this happen, and for the fantastic and enthusiastic attendees! We also made lunch out into a fundraiser to support Mammograms in Action by doing unbroken “Karen”. Serious burner.The following week I was off to San Diego for a lovely couple days with my new sponsor Rx Smart Gear.Dave Newman of Rx Smart Gear was kind enough to see me off to my next stop, 52 hours of awesome at SEALFIT.All this wrapped around my precious time with my Sweet Baboo.Life is good.
