To the sound of bagpipes, athletes filed onto the field to take on Diane.
It is a gorgeous, sunny day in Northern California. To the sound of bagpipes, the athletes filed on to the field, eager and nervous for the day ahead. The day started off with the National Anthem, masterfully sung by Lyle Sadie Belger, 9-year-old daughter of the event’s MC, TJ Belger. A CrossFitter herself since age 5, she said she was very nervous singing in front of such a big crowd, but applause broke out as she hit those high notes, and the crowd went nuts when she finished. What a great beginning to the 2012 NorCal Regional.
