another fantastic gymnastics cert

I'm typing this post as I sit at the Toronto airport at 4:30am waiting to depart for home. Just finished another fantastic gymnastics cert out East. The weekend was full of great laughs as always... But also a lot of hard work.

Oh the adventures we had... Checked into the Casa Mendosa Friday afternoon once we arrived. As Tucker put it on our way to the airport this morning, closer is not always better. This place was "interesting". Old man Mike at the front desk at check in was alittle funny telling us to plug in this switch and that switch before turning on this light or the heater. Too confusing!! Heard crazy noises one night and couldn't figure out where they were coming from... Open the curtains and two raccoons where yelling at each other and fighting outside my window!!! Those guys were HUGE! Same size as a mid size dog and evil looking!

CrossFit colosseum... HUGE gym! 11,000 square feet of open space. 200m indoor running loop, high ceilings, and just lots of usable space to move around. The owner of CF colosseum, Paul, is an amazingly giving man who is a wonderful host. I'm very thankful for everything he did for Tucker and I all weekend... Picking us up from the airport, driving us to and from the cert each day, taking us out for dinner, and getting up at 4am to take us to the airport. Not to mention taking us to the Canadian Armoury where he works and showing us the history around there. WOW cool stuff!

The people at the cert were great too! Very impressed with the type of people that go through these things. One person in particular stood out for me. Her attitude towards training, improving, and taking in new information was incredible. Her ability to pick up the concepts and run with them was inspiring to me. Joanne from CrossFit Kitchener is a very inspiring female crossfitter. Girl, if you are reading, thanks for attending that cert! You may not realize it but you touched my heart and have made an impact on me and my mental approach to my own crossfitting. Good luck at your sectionals and I hope we can meet up again at the regionals! In the meantime... Send me that picture of us!
