Those of you interested in any shape or form in the 2018 CrossFit season and being part of Operation Lando, there will be a full announcement on every detail coming tomorrow. This will detail the new aspects of the season and how we will do things this year which will be unique to all Landos and truly awesome.
The announcement will have all the details, but the crux of it is we are going for a qualified Regionals Team with a roster of athletes contributing throughout the Open like that of all other team sports. Even if you haven’t competed in CrossFit before, or are new to our community, if you are willing to work hard for something special and think you have a bit of ability now or waiting to be nurtured, you can be part of Operation Lando 2018 Competition Team Throwdown Bonanza Blaster. Operation Lando for short. Don’t worry right now about the absolute of “can you participate”. Obviously when talking a comp team there needs to be a level of ability involved. However that level is broader than you probably think, and more inclusive than ever before.
Also, the big question will surely be what is expected of members of Operation Lando from a training perspective. Again this will be fully detailed in tomorrow’s announcement, but the bottom line is you get back what you put in in this sport. If you aren’t willing to work hard for however long each day your life allows, you not only won’t end up satisfied but don’t belong on Operation Lando. I want and will take any person who wants to work hard no matter how long or short they can each day, no matter how good they think they are or can be, as long as they do so with a positive attitude and expect nothing they don’t work for. I will not take a soul who isn’t willing to sacrifice in some way, who brings negative energy to the roster or community as a whole, or who won’t buy into this year having potential for being something special.
Tune in tomorrow for the excitement, and start thinking about how much fun the next 4-5 months could be with a little hard work.
