Long Blog - worth the read!

So let's start by stating the obvious… the website was down for 10 days.  The blog still isn't reposted. The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games are this weekend and you all would like to know what the heck is going on!

Huge apologies regarding the website!  Long story short, I didn't realize all would be lost when apple switched to a new format and it opened up a string of required upgrades, clean ups, back ups blah blah blah.  I know several of you are thinking of suggestions and I appreciate that sincerely but things are in the works for a fresh website anyway so it's just bad timing and now that it's fixed, we can make do until we release the new website.  This blog is a quick set up and will evolve into a legit Taranis blog, for now you have to see it as is… pretty plain.  Hey, sometimes classic vanilla is the best flavour anyway.  Reset your book mark links btw to this blog.  

2012 Reebok CrossFit Games :

If you are new to CrossFit and Taranis, you probably have heard of "The Games" but might not have a sense of what they are.  This is the CrossFit Communities biggest test, on a global scale, with the end result crowing the King, Queen and Top Team.  Pulled right off the Games site "The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth ™. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the world's toughest athletes, and a thrilling experience for spectators. Since their inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes."     

The Reebok CrossFit Games are kind of a big deal around Taranis.  We are privileged to be the home of some top ranked athletes!! We have been qualifying athletes in both the individual and Team competitions since we started our Games quest in 2010.
