A little over 2 ½ months ago I started drinking the CrossFit cool-aid and decided to participate in LIC’s CrossFit 2nd Annual Frostbite Competition. Most of my friends thought I was coo coo for cocoa puffs to want to spend a Saturday freezing my tuches off while performing a variety of exercises in a muddy half-frozen abandoned lot outside. I sure do love me a good challenge. The workouts were HARD and the cold made them that much HARDER. But I survived and really appreciated all the support and camaraderie of the other athletes, coaches, judges, and spectators. Everyone was wicked awesome but let’s not forget about the food. Yes I am that girl that shows up to a fitness competition eager to check-out the food and FOODfreaks couldn’t have been a more fitting food truck. They were serving up warm and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, chillis, and side-dishes like crispy fried brussel sprouts. I definitely need to pay them a visit (perhaps when it is a tad warmer out) at their FortGreenePark location in Brooklyn.
