We wanted to send out a quick message regarding one of our members, Sharon Thielmann aka Mama T. Sharon has been working incredibly hard this past year to address her weaknesses and improve her overall strength and conditioning in an effort to make it to the CrossFit Games.
Last year Sharon decided that 2018 was her year and upped her training. She has been attending regular classes and has also been working through one-on-one sessions with Coach Chris and is giving it her best shot to reach her goal of making it to the Games. We are super excited for Sharon and are so impressed by her drive and motivation that she has shown leading up to this moment.
That being said, we wanted to ask all of our members not to mention the leaderboard standings to Sharon during the Open season. Sharon gets quite anxious during the competition and sometimes gets caught up leaderboarding which affects her performance. This year she would rather not know how she is doing and instead just give it her all and see where she lands at the end of the competition.
Of course we want you to cheer on your fellow athletes as the enthusiasm during the Open is infectious. This doesn’t have to change – high fives are still welcome! We just ask that you don’t let Sharon know where she is sitting during the competition, so that she can keep her head in the game and put her best foot forward.
Thank you all in advance and good luck, Sharon! We can’t wait to witness your hard work pay off!
