Follow the Road to Carson: Pacific Regional

Holy regionals weekend, Batman. From the Pacific, East and California Regionals, it was nonstop action around the clock. I loved that the Pacific Regional’s timing put it in prime time television watching hours here on the East Coast. Minus the part where I kept staying up way past my bedtime each night to watch.

What a surreal finish for the 2015 Pacific Regionals……I can't describe how happy and proud I am with finishing 3rd in the Pacific Region. Thanks so much for all the kind messages everyone, I really appreciate it. This would not have been possible without the support of my friends and family!!!! @nikk.leahy, @tashkocks, Angie, @mwydall , @jake_knight85 , @nick_craigie, @jardanizzle , @coachrx01 and Derek, without you guys being right by my side I couldn't have done it. @jardanizzle, @nick_craigie and @orrsome_photo because of you, my training was taken to another level, thank-you so much you guys are the best training partners. 🙂 Thanks so much @coachrx01 for the ongoing coaching, long distance is hard but we definitely nailed it on the head. Last but not least and the one that deserves it the most….@orrsome_photo (Shane Orr) thank-you so much for helping get through everyday with a level head and keeping me on track with my training and goals. You were the only one that believed in me when no one else did and have done absolutely everything for me. Thank-you from the bottom of my heart. 💚💜💛 #crossfitgames #TCT #Bringittoomey #90 #crossfit #pacificregion #regionals2015 #3rdplace #crossfitgladstone #cfg #carsonherewecome #family #friends #support #fitness
