Even though Jess and Patrick are still pretty new to the ~CrOssFiT UniVeRsE~, they’re still down to clown in The Open. When we asked them why they’re #intheopen, they responded separately but with basically the same answer because they are super spouses. Check it:    “Because peer pressure. But really, because of the community. We have loved getting to be a part of this weird group of people, and the FOMO of not going to Friday Night Lights was just too great! Patrick and I are still really new to Crossfit, so I have no idea what to expect from the Open— in my head it’s basically doing Murph once a week for a month. That sounds terrible. But I love this group! And even in our short time doing crossfit, I feel like I’ve done so much stuff I NEVER thought I’d be able to do. I’ve seen wonderful improvements in my strength and endurance and flexibility, and part of that is because I’ve had you guys around me, cheering me on through the workouts. So the unknown, daunting challenge of the Open seems much more doable because we’ll be surrounded by our Crossfit family. And in this kind of setting, gathering every week to cheer and push each other, the challenge of the Open seems worth it. Even if it is doing Murph once a week for a month*—  you guys are worth it! *If the open is Murph every week, I 100% quit, but will be there very Friday night to cheer you guys on. -Jess” Sidebar: Each week will not be Murph. You know, unless Dave Castro decides that it is. And then every week will unfortunately be Murph. But probably (hopefully) not. But also maybe. “Why am I #InTheOpen? Honestly, the community. Everybody says the Open is a ton of fun and even though the workouts are terrible, we’re all struggling together. The people are what makes this box great. I’m looking forward to pushing myself and cheering on everybody else as they do something they didn’t think they could. I’m most excited about setting a baseline that I can try to beat next year and the year after that.” -Patrick P.S. We are not sorry about the peer pressure. IF YOU HAVE STILL NOT SIGNED UP FOR THE OPEN, GET ON IT. It’s going to be so fun and so great and so hard but so fun and so great. Games.crossfit.com
