Well, Rich Froning and his cousin were going to be competing in the fundraising competition, so I decided to take the kids to watch. First, I let them watch the movie on Thursday so that they would have some idea about what crossfit was, and who Rich Froning was. Then, on Friday night I took them over to Crossfit (806) to see the first half of the competition.
I took a quick video while Rich Froning was lifting. He's in the blue shirt and red shorts.
After this heat, they auctioned off his shirt and his shoes. It was kinda funny because by the end he was standing there in just his shorts and socks.
Then, I took the kids to see the second half of the competition on Saturday morning. It was held on the rooftop of a parking garage in downtown Amarillo, which seemed weird at first, but was totally okay once we were there.
The kids even got to meet Rich Froning, and his cousin/teammate Darren Hunsucker.

They were totally great with the kids, and they really took the time to talk with them. They asked them what their names where, how old they were, what sports they played and just talked to them for a while. Afterwards, Lex said, "Rich and Darren were just the nicest guys." It was great.

In the car on the way home, Lex informed me that he is going to start doing crossfit, and it is his life's goal to beat Rich Froning. He is going to grow up and win more Crossfit World Championships than he did.
