Friday Night Lights!
Written by Jaimie Bougie
It’s finally here – the Invictus Friday Night Lights! Tonight kicks off the start of yet another exciting CrossFit Open season and we have a lot in store for both our athletes and our Sea of Green crowd!
Athletes who will be competing during Friday Night Lights will start warming up at 5:30 pm with the first heat going at 6:00 pm and heats running every 20 minutes (or so). This is a GREAT first event for the Open, and one that suits the strengths of our Invictus athletes. You will not want to miss some of these performances, and there is no doubt that our athletes will perform much better with the raucous support of the Sea of Green.
The Sea of Green is famous for being a super supportive crowd, and Fox 5 San Diego news will be here to film this awesome event! So bring your amazing energy, loud cheering voices and your favorite green Invictus shirt. We will also have some great vendors on site during this event, including Ranchwood BBQ, Paleo Kai, VitaCoco and Stronger Faster Healthier. So don’t forget to stop by the vendors for some free samples!
We will also be handing out lots of great prizes. These prizes won’t just go to the top athletes, but also to the top cheerleaders and judges throughout the night. For those of you who have registered for Team Sea of Green on the CrossFit Games website, but are completing the workouts during your normal group classes, we will be randomly selecting names from a raffle to win one of our three CrossFit goodie bags!
Friday Night Lights celebrates the unity of our Invictus community and we look forward to seeing each and every one of you! Feel free to bring your friends and family along as well. The more, the merrier!
Finally, for all of you who will be performing 13.1 on Friday or Saturday, I strongly encourage you to listen to our amazing Heidi Fearon’s Guided Visualization for 13.1. She will help you find the perfect mindset for tackling 13.1 and performing your best. Get her Guided Visualization here!
