The 5th Annual NorCal Masters event is coming this weekend, January 24th and 25th, at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond. The NorCal Masters is an annual two-day competition for Masters Athletes, with age divisions of 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, and 60+ in both genders.
The weather forecast is glorious so we encourage you to join us for a fun weekend. Come watch some amazing athletes over age 40, shop the great vendor village, and cheer on our very own CrossFit Marin athletes! We’ve been awed by their dedication to self-improvement, watching them work very hard on a daily basis, continually pushing themselves. I encourage all of you to head over the bridge and prepare to get inspired!
We have 6 incredible athletes competing this weekend:
Susie B. - Our newest addition to our coaching staff, Susie is competing in the 45+ division and is going to be exciting to watch! Susie is no stranger to fierce competition, but taking on this 2-day CF competition is a new endeavor for her. I hope to see lots of Cavers cheering on her incredible spirit, tenacity and perseverance.
Narendra R. - Also competing in the 45+ division Narendra has an accomplished athletic history (not to mention a 5:07 Fran time!). Narendra played soccer, basketball, and baseball in high school, while attacking track and field in college as well as a few years afterward. He has also run several triathlons and has 5+ years of ultra distance trail running experience.
Mark A. - Mark is competing in the 50+ division and is so much fun to watch! Incredibly proficient in bodyweight movements, I think we’ll see him close to the podium at NorCal!
Martin - Our youngest competitor, Martin is a strong, seasoned CrossFit competitor that places high in every competition I’ve seen him tackle. His calm, methodical way of attacking workouts makes him a consistent and accomplished competitor. Last year at NorCal, Martin placed 6th, and I believe we’ll see him get to the podium this year! He is competing in the 40+
Karen L. - Karen and her husband Rich (see #6) are the backbone of CrossFit Marin. On a daily basis I watch these two strive to be their best and work their hardest, inspiring our community to always push harder and be stronger. We are all so proud of Karen for competing at NorCal while coming back from a significant shoulder injury. Karen is competing in the 45+ division.
Rich L. - Quietly working hard in the corner you’ll find Rich, accepting discomfort everyday, yet digging deep to better himself. RIch placed 18th at the 2012 CrossFit Games, and he placed 6th last year at NorCal. I believe we’ll have the chance to cheer him on this year in the finals!
