We want to say Congrats from all of us at Crossfit Kinnick to Beth Guse for getting 3rd place at the 2010 Crossfit Games SoCal Sectionals @ UCLA’s Drake Stadium.  She placed 5th on the Stadium WOD with a time of 21:44, and smoked through the first part of the 2nd WOD with a time of 8:58 and the second part with a time of 8:47 to finish 4th on that event.  Everyone who watched her do her Handstand push ups was amazed at how quickly she blew through them!  The Sunday WOD was all about max efforts.  Beth finished 5th on this WOD with her highest placing in the pull up section with a max effort of 22 pull ups!  Amazing work!  The next step for Beth is the Southwest Regional on May 8th & 9th @ the University of California at Irvine.  She will be competing against all the top athletes from Hawaii, Northern California, Southern California, and Arizona for 1 of 4 spots that will be advancing to the 2010 Crossfit Games in Aromas, Ca this summer.  Wish her luck and please continue to encourage her.  If you are wondering Beth’s secret to success I would have to say it is her ability to push through the pain and not stop but even more importantly there is not one day that Beth does not come early to class and work on her weaknesses.  Keep it up Beth.  On a side note, Beth did her first kipping pull up in June 2009.  What a difference a year makes right?
