Last month I had the great opportunity to compete with my friend and SoCal beast Kenneth Leverich at the Rebel Rising Partner Competition. I got the invite and jumped at the chance to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital while getting to throwdown with some top SoCal athletes! The competition was a great event for the community and a unique format with a single division for same sex or co-ed partners. Red Wolf CrossFit hosted the event, they wanted to showcase the athletes and affiliates who are competing with emphasis on “Quality” over “Quantity” and giving back to the community. I was humbled to be invited and the competition couldn’t have gone better! Kenny and I came out on top after the 3 events, it was a close finish with my friends Jon Pera/David Millar coming in second and Reid Worthington/Aaron Gardner rounding out the top 3. The workouts were challenging and the finishes were close, in the end Kenny and I pulled off a third, first, and second place finish. It was a great experience and hopping on top of that podium definitely fueled my fire for this upcoming competition season.
