Pre-Games Post

I don’t think that it has quite hit me yet. I leave for Los Angeles in about 9 hours and my clothes are still in the washing machine. I travel just enough to not get stressed out about packing and flying and whatnot, so I’m not worried about the fact that I’m not ready yet. I think I’ll go get some breakfast.

I am ready.

I may not be packed, but I am ready- mentally, physically ready. As I approach my third CrossFit Games, I do so with an outlook unique to my other visits to the Home Depot/Stub Hub Center.

This will be fun.

My first year, I was nervous and star-struck, surrounded by the incredible women that I had done my best to emulate. My second year, I had high expectations, maybe too high. I thought I was better than I was and my glaring weaknesses were put under a microscope. It was a sophomore mistake and I have learned so much from it. This third year is going to be fun, in that sick, kick-you-in-the-ass kind of way. I am honest when I say that I am excited to see what events they throw at us.


My Quest for 2013 has surely been a team effort, as there is simply no way that I could have done this without the Kinney Pit Crew (KPC). This support group not only includes my training partners at CrossFit Chickasaw, but also my family, friends, sponsors, and coach, CJ. Keep in mind that individual competition is hardly that. I am not alone when I step on floor of the Stub Hub Center.  Rest assured that I will give my best efforts and enjoy every moment.  The KPC and I have worked too hard for me to do any differently.
