On Sunday (July 6th), I went to the 2nd Annual Crossfit Games in Aromas, CA. A lot of fun. Incredibly fit, half naked people everywhere. Sort of like Woodstock for jocks.

Saul, my Crossfit instructor, was one of the volunteer officials.

I got to meet faustin and freckletash for the first time in person, which was a real treat. I was also pleased to see Lexi and Matt later in the afternoon. Here freckletash applies sunscreen to faustin

Jason was the last to finish in his heat, so the whole crowd was watching his progress. When he finished, everyone broke into cheers.

No Koolaid, though. But Gatorade had reps there, selling a new glucose free drink. And, strangely, Panda Express. Panda Express was at the first games too.
