Besides the Arnold’s Sports Classic, this is the one event of this year I most wish I could have attended. Santa Cruz. California. Birthplace of CrossFit. Sushi . . . sorry, I went to California a few years ago and my most loving memory is the sushi I had at some restaurant off the Pacific Coast Highway. 13.5 in Santa Cruz, California, and Sushi served by a laid back surfer girl. Geez, who wouldn’t want that life, even if only for a day?
Since I wasn’t there, I thought it’d be cute to post some pictures, you know, to make me think I was . . . just in case I hit my head and forget to read this intrusive preamble. Pictures. Trick myself into thinking I was there. I’m not tricking you, you’re smarter than that. You do read, right? Even if you don’t, I’m sure you have a leg up on me in the brains department. I’ve got you beat in the imagination department. Something about turnabout and fair play. I don’t believe in the latter. So, back to my wandering imagination:
Rich Froning. The number one reason people visit this blog. I’ve got stats to prove it. Jason Khalipa wearing Froning’s home gym t-shirt. Mind-game or respect? Hopefully a little of both. Beast, meet Beast.
Well, that was my not-trip to California. Santa Cruz. Sushi. See? I told you I can’t shake that memory. Who cares if rolled white rice is or isn’t in the Paleo, you gotta take what you read with a shot of soy sauce.
Thanks again for stopping by. 🙂
