19.1–simple but deadly, intense but somehow also boring. Remnants of athletes lay strewn upon the floor as the rowers continued rowing of their own accord. Noses and lips were lost to miss-caught wall balls. Cries such as “how is there still 8 minutes left!?” rang out throughout the JPCF stadium. But though the task at hand was tiresome and grueling, JPCF athlete-warriors supported each other to come out on top!
While I will of course acknowledge the athletes trailblazing the way through 19.1, I also want to use this post to highlight all of the firsts that occurred during 19.1, as well as any other interesting factoids, quotes, and just plain silly-business that transpired.

Samreen and Brett L., two new members of our community, completed their first CrossFit open workouts together. They crushed it, of course.
John went unbroken until round 8.
Erin N. RX’d and used the 10 foot line as her standard #beast.
Josh B. and Rachel challenged themselves to go RX and dropped it like a squat over and over again to destroy the WOD… two times!
