Rainier CrossFit's first annual Rainier's Strongest Man contest and fundraiser took place Saturday, and a bunch Eastside CrossFitters were there to cheer on our man Sean in the competition and to play in the novice division ourselves. Kurtis and Laurie Bowler of Rainier CF put on a heck of event, and we all had a great time putting our strength to the test with fat-bar overhead "axle" presses, stone lifts, keg carries, bus pulls, farmer's walks, and, for the actual competitors, a 600+ pound massive tire flip. Phew!
Thanks to Heather, Craig, Logan, Sean, Madonna, Bree, Bill, James, and Carmen for going down to Sumner with us for the fun, fundraising, and post-event fermented beverages. Special thanks to Darren for volunteering a whole day of professional photography for the event.
Tune in tomorrow for more photos from the event.
