Mountain Sectional Results!
Sectionals are finished! I survived, got 50th out of 67 women (scores are posted here). Since I was just hoping to not finish dead last, I'm very happy! I was in 62nd place at the end of day 1, so I made up 12 places on day 2, which made me feel great. I did not scale any of the workouts, including the last one, which had chest-to-bar pull-ups and 95 pound squat cleans. Competing like this is stressful and emotionally and physically draining, but it is worth it to push yourself and see what you are really capable of.
The women competing were incredible athletes, and I feel honored to just be in the same event as them. Not to mention my 9 teammates! Go Flatirons men, you all did amazing and I was proud to cheer you on. And a big thanks to all the people who drove through the ice and snow to come cheer us on. It made a huge difference to have so much support on the sidelines.
Here are a few photos from the event (thanks to Eric, Alex, and Jason). I'll post lots more photos throughout the week. Workout details are at the end of the post.
