#tbt to the 2013 southeast regional. I was in first place until this very moment, when it all fell apart. After my first few years chasing the dream of becoming a CrossFit Games athlete, it finally seemed like it was going to come true. For time: 21-15-9 Deadlift (315) Box jump (30”) I knew this wouldn’t be a good event for me, but I never imaged that I’d finish minutes behind the field in 7:53, taking 40th place. There were a couple events after this and I fought my tail off to reclaim one of the qualifying spots, but it wasn’t yet my time. I’d finish this season 7th overall and I was determined to improve upon that. The next year would begin a six year straight run of qualifying for the Games.
You know the “did we just become best friends” scene from stepbrothers? That’s what I felt like after my first conversation with @andrewdeast! This clip is mostly me babbling, as is the full interview on his IGTV, but I urge you to dig into his page. Andrew and his wife @shawnjohnson are doing some awesome things and are pretty darn cute and entertaining. Can’t wait to link up more in the future!
Humidity was OFF THE CHARTS after the rain today! 💦 This was the third attempt at a set of five at 205, because the bar went flying out of my hands on the first two! Speaking of rain, @maximusohlsen got rained on and it didn’t come from the sky! Sorry bubba! Wait for it...
I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS! Look closely at my profile photo! Swipe ➡️ to time travel back 5 years and see baby Noah and @maximusohlsen! 👨🏼🦁➡️👶🏼🐶 Love this dude and this gym and my life more now than I even knew I could back then! Thanks to @singlepoint_tim for helping me recreate this! Original by @nikmartinezzz. Update the profile pic?
