Can you believe it? The GAMES are here already - this coming weekend! And before I post pretty much everything you ever ever wanted to know about following along with the CrossFit Games this weekend, I'd love to know the answer to another question. Just how interested are YOU, personally, in the CrossFit Games? While the games are a big deal for the athletes, families and coaches of athletes, and fans, it might not be such a big deal for you... so I created a poll to find out.
Personally, I'll be at the Games, and am looking forward to re-connecting with all of my CrossFit friends from around the world - and seeing the fittest humans on earth doing their thing! Hope to see you there or connect on Twitter (@andypetranek).
