CrossFit – “Just Squat” with Greg Glassman:

 

Happy Birthday wishes go out to our future Dr. Meredith today!  Have an awesome day!

 

This is the US Southwest Regional update video of event 6:

 

 

Why was this event such a big deal?  Because Chris Spealler, a crowd favourite competitor, who has competed in every CrossFit Games since it’s inception, almost didn’t make it to the podium.  Lisbeth Darsh writes an eloquent essay titled ‘Speal’ on why it was so important to so many people.  (Yes, I have to admit I was one of those people staring at my computer watching the Twitter feed of the US Southwest Regionals.  I literally had tears in my eyes when I thought he didn’t make it!)  Please take the time to read it and watch his outstanding performance – it gave me goosebumps!
