What an AMAZING event this weekend! Around 40 MTM Athletes competed in two divisions with our friends at CrossFit Utility. The team competition started with a 1RM Snatch or Clean & Jerk depending on the division. It seems that competition brings our the best in us as literally a dozen people set PRs! Dmac, Noah, Steph, Jillian, Erin, Matt M, Donny, Tim S, Jared, Melissa, Jackie, Joslin, Kathie, Megan, Chris W, and undoubtedly more who I’ve yet to hear about set PRs this weekend. Dmac and Noah both Snatched more than 200lbs (205lbs) while Chris W. hit a first time 200lb+ PR Clean & Jerk.
A bunch of Utility athletes PR’d as well leaving several of us feeling completely content to go home and forfeit the rest of the competition. Nonetheless, we pressed on: MTM’s Competition Team of Steph, Jillian, Noah, and Dmac won overall with a close fought battle against Utility’s best.
Remember: MTM Christmas Party this Saturday at 7PM. Bring a White Elephant (Cheap and Sarcastic) Gift, an appetizer, and some paleo booze.
