This email is coming to you from 81301 Coffee in Durango Colorado. Our favorite place to work in Durango! We’ve tried other places and they just don’t stack up. The people, internet, music, and vibe are the best!
Here’s what I found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week…
Coolest thing that happened this week –
My Mom, Patty Bauer qualified for her 2nd CrossFit Games by finishing 4th in the Semifinals Online Qualifier!!! SO COOL!!!
Just a quick note… she hasn’t always been in great shape (like you’re probably thinking), so if you’re reading this wishing that you were in better shape… you can follow her program at The Get Better Project, and she can even be YOUR online coach to help you through the ups and downs of getting into great shape at any age! Just reply and I’ll get you setup.
So, the really cool thing about my Mom qualifying for the Games this year is that they are only taking 10 athletes from each division. Last year it was 20 athletes. This means the competition is going to be fierce! And maybe even harder workouts.
One of the things that I’m the most proud of my Mom for… is that CrossFit decided to make a REALLY bad decision by requiring 65+ females/males to do legless rope climbs in the Semifinals. Even if you are a high level Masters athlete, these are an unsafe exercise that really isn’t required in real life.
Well, over the course of 3 weeks my mom figured out how to do these legless rope climbs, and was able to get 5 of them in her Semifinals workout. Here’s a video of her doing one of the climbs. So impressive!!!
What I am the most STOKED about –
StarLink finally released an RV version of their satellite internet service, AND WE ORDERED IT!!! It’s scheduled to be delivered to the Durango UPS tomorrow.
I’m already dreaming of being way out in the middle of nowhere, near am amazing mountain bike trail system, and working on fast internet! This could be a game changer!!!
We will be doing a FULL review on The Vantastic Life YouTube channel, so make sure you are subscribed, if you’re interested in that kind of thing… 😉
Video of the week –
Mountain Biking Wire Rim Trail in Hurricane Utah
This is the full video where Emily found the rattlesnake. AND it might be the ride that has the prettiest views of all our rides! Assuming you like Southern Utah’s red mountainous views…
That’s what I have for you this week. Don’t stop yourself from getting into the best possible shape/health that you can! You control your outcomes! Let me know if I can help.
