The city that never sleeps. Termed initially for New York, but very fitting for Las Vegas, Nevada. Perfect for a crew of seven guys who’ve been living out of an RV for exactly two weeks and have been sleeping very little.
Prior to even arriving in Vegas, we hit a little bump in the road (to the cure), which literally blew one of the RV tires in the middle of nowhere desert in Arizona. Stranded amongst mountains and cacti, we waited for over an hour to have the tire swapped out and get back on the road. After the tires were all fixed up, we tipped the responder the most awesome way possible, with a whole case of Kill Cliff!
No worries though, right? When we finally do get to Vegas, we have three free rooms for two night at the MGM Grand. Of course, thirty minutes before we show up, a worker ran into a power line and took the power for the entire hotel and casino. Sitting in the lobby, we were just happy to get out of the crammed RV and into some AC. Once the rooms were finally ready at two am, we all went up and crashed.
The next day was a bit up in the air, as there was a minor miscommunication between us and CrossFit Las Vegas. They had posted Barbara as their WOD and weren’t expecting us until 4. So we slept in and spent a little time roasting by the pool in the desert hot sun. Once we arrived at CFLV a few hours later, they were extremely accommodating and flipped their script to salvage our WOD to the Cure. In the end they brought out some awesome people and we raised over $700 in the last minute. Thanks to Vili, Mike, Joe and all the others that came out to support SeeFit.
In line with the opening phrase of this post, the crew had a YOLO inspired night as we roamed the strip…
Back on the road today on our way to California for our last WOD to the Cure event at CrossFit Balboa in Newport Beach. As we drive we’re constantly checking twitter posts, listening to the live feed from the Games, and calling and texting friends that are already there keeping tabs on the athletes as they fight through the grueling events of day one.
As we reach two full weeks on the road, it all culminates at The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games. The posts may slow down a bit as we’re locked into the leader board and at the Home Depot Center cheering on our favorite athletes. I can’t say it enough, THANK YOU. Thank you to every single person that’s ever even read the word SeeFit and even more so to all those that have lent their support. The road has been an amazing one and one that no one will ever forget. Possibly the beginning of a very long future on the Road to the Cure. Please feel to contact us in regards to anything we’ve been doing, and things you think we could be doing better, as we may make this SeeFit’s first annual Road to the Cure trip to The CrossFit Games!
