No WOD For Me

by Courtney on August 18, 2012

Oh man…I feel like I have so much to catch you all up on. I have a little bit of time before heading out for dinner tonight, so let’s see how much we can get through!

First off, would you guys check out this view?

This is actually the view that we have from our hotel room and is it not just awesome? The Hyatt Regency has really been absolutely great and super accommodating for everything that we’ve needed for this weekend’s conference.

So this morning I had planned on getting up and possibly walking along the river, but my alarm never went off so that didn’t happen. Apparently it was raining anyways, so I’ll take the extra sleep anyway.

Things got started nice and early this morning…

With lots of vendors to scope out before breakfast started.

Oh, heyyyy Reebok!

Reebok actually provided all of the attendees with a fresh pair of Reebok sneakers. Check out my new kicks!

Love ‘em.

For breakfast, we had a ton of delicious options, courtesy of Wild Harvest.

I basically grabbed a little bit of everything.

Half of a banana nut muffin, a yogurt parfait, fresh fruit, Greek omelet, and a potato and asparagus casserole (pictured on the right) that was absolutely delicious. I could have eaten that times about 20.

The parfait was really delicious too. So many great flavors.

After breakfast, it was time for a little CrossFit action.

Aren’t these girls so cute?

Everyone seemed super psyched to get started on the WOD for today. Everyone also seemed pretty psyched about the trainers that Reebok sent to lead the workout. Winking smile

Although my experience with CrossFit is limited (but SUPER FUN), I just love how the instructors really seem to take the time to explain everything and make sure that everyone is maintaining proper form. So, so important!

IMG_7125

The actual WOD was only about five minutes long, which included a ton of squats and jumps…

I, however, watched from afar and sported my Reebok headband in spirit.

I really wanted to join in, and looking back I probably could have since the workout wasn’t too intense. But I’m still happy with my decision to stick with my low-impact stuff for now. In time…I’ll be back. Winking smile

Alright…gotta go get ready…I’ve got a special dinner tonight with Chobani and some other lovely ladies!

How’s everyone’s weekend going so far?!?

my thighs are still burning from those squats. An intense WOD with plenty of good looking guys to look at!

Sounds like so much fun, Courtney!!
It looks like you guys got some awesome swag! ;)
Haha, I’m with my family in California right now (vacationing from Washington State for a week), and although it’s not HLS, it’s been pretty fun, too! :D

I just returned from a few days in Atlantic City an hour ago and it was a BLAST! Walking along the boardwalk was interesting; you see a lot of different people all mixed in one place. I walked through a casino, and yeah…I’m not returning to one again in my life. I can’t see myself clicking a few buttons on a machine with the slim chance that I’ll get all my money back. I did think the big Wheel of Fortune game/wheel in the Wild Wild West Casino in Bally’s was very COOL looking. Too bad I couldn’t take a picture of it. :(

Looks like you’re having a great time. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Boston!

Good for you for sticking with your decision and skipping out on the WOD! Better safe than sorry. If it’d been super intense you might have regretted participating! At least you look super cute in that headband and have some FAB new sneakers! <3 <3

The view on the photo that you got from your hotel is stunning. I love the water view. Your suite is pretty. You can definitely have a comfortable sleep. It seems you are happy and have a great time in your conference.
