My visit to Makena Crossfit marks the 46th box I have dropped into. This one is only a month old and it has some very interesting owners. The head coach is Paul Romero. As soon as I saw him I knew that he was not a run of mill crossfitter. He was completed ripped and leaner than most crossfit athletes. We figured out we had a common connection, and when I spoke with our common friend he filled me in. Paul is a world class endurance athlete, He has competed and hit the podium in over 100 expedition adventure races on 5 continents for the last 12 years, climbed the 7 summits with his son, Jordan. With all of that the guy is super humble and was 100% focused on helping every athlete get better. That is not something that is very common in my opinion.

This was a good little wod. First round everyone was tightly grouped going thru the run but the Deadlifts started to open the gap up. I was pacing myself off of the wife of another salesforce employee who was crushing the wod. She ended up dusting me but I finished 2nd and beat the morning score by a minute.
Nice tailwind on the way out and then the way back was into a strong headwind the entire way.
