My name is ATHENA and I loved GGRX. My team and I had all never competed in a crossfit event before and it certainly pushed us to our limits. we all worked harder than we realized we were capable, and we all PR'D during the 1rm complex. We felt eager and excited in the weeks leading up to, and certainly the day of the event. It felt great to be out there competing against so many amazing and powerful women. Since then we are all pushing ourselves to train harder and be even better the next time around.
We had SUCH an amazing day on Sat November 19 2016 at CrossFit Sanctuary!!!
We are not the fastest and CERTAINLY not the strongest team to have competed, but at this event, the support from everyone creates an atmosphere of success for everyone!!! The day ran along so smoothly, which for the second year in a row makes it our favorite competition. I compete a few times a year and am often one of the smaller competitors.
My team (although much younger and stronger than me) never makes me feel like the weak link and the other competitors, help me to feel like I am one of them! GGRx is SO encouraging, motivating and 100% represents the idea of "community" that CrossFit is known for! Coming together to compete for a great cause while doing something healthy and having a blast?? It doesn't get any better than that. Can NOT wait to come back next year.
Thank you to GGRx and CrossFit Sanctuary!

Girls Gone RX was a day filled with bonding, fun, adrenaline and PR’s. An amazing event to say the least, but for us it was more than just going out there and leaving it all on the floor. When we signed up for this competition our main goal was to raise as much money as we could for Bright Pink to help impact the lives of as many women as we could. Thanks to our awesome friends, family and CrossFit Harwood Heights community we raised almost $2500! Girls Gone RX got gyms from all over together for a fun day of competition as well as education, can’t wait for next year!
