2011: A Very Cochise Year In Review

As 2011 draws to a close I'd like to throw out a few highlights of my year. For me, these events helped to give shape to my 2011 experience and from them I'll always remember 2011 for a great year filled with time well spent with my family, my CFS comrades, and my ongoing pursuit of world domination.

January: Bring on the snow and dancing penguins!

December: My WARPATH to the 2012 CrossFit Games season has begun. Training is in full swing, LivXFit is beginning to gain greater exposure, and the gym is as busy as it's ever been. To top off an already exciting month, an article I recently wrote profiling 2011 CF Games Individual athlete and North Central competitor, Armand McCormick, was published today on the Games site: BOLDLY AGGRESIVE. December was a fun-filled month full of Christmas decorating, gift giving and plenty of sacred time with loved ones!

2012 has got big shoes to fill in my book. I'm thankful for all of the wonderful blessings 2011 gave me! Here's to the New Year!
