The Spartan 300 this morning was… [searching for a word powerful enough to describe how totally kickass I feel right now]… frexcitingly awesome.

I didn’t get to the last 25 pullups, but I don’t mind. I jumped every box jump and did all the floor wipers with the 95-lb. bar. That’s it: I’ll never need to scale the Spartan workout again. From here, it’s all about picking up my pace and mastering the kipping pullup. And those sound like fun goals to me!

As always, hugs of gratitude to Dave and my fellow CrossFitters for the words of encouragement and inspiration.

More photos and all the glorious details later; it’s nap time.
