the humbler games

July 17, 2013

i was recently a part of a crossfit competition called the humbler games which is nothing more than the 2013 crossfit open workouts done by men but scaled for women.

The Humbler Games

i built a website to track the progress of the competition.

The Humbler Games

and i made a mobile version as well.

The Humbler Games

the shitty part is that i did not perform all that well. i placed 4th in every single workout and 4th overall. however the dude who was in 5th had to leave for military training towards the end so i am stuck with last place by default.

The Humbler Games

this means i have to do a workout called the murph while the rest of the dudes eat and drink on my dime until i can finish the workout.

a murph is the following movements all while wearing a 20lb weight vest:

  • run one mile
  • 300 air squats
  • 200 push-ups
  • 100 pull-ups
  • run one more mile

probably will take me like an hour and a half. either way, i am thankful i did the competition but even more thankful it is over.

you can see the site at thehumblergames.com.
